Meet The Staff: Rebecca Chen '18

Year: 2018

Major: Business and/or Economics!

Hometown: Cheshire, Connecticut

Her Campus: What are you involved with on campus?

Rebecca Chen: I'm in ELL (English Language Learning), which helps Brandeis employees who have trouble with English be more comfortable talking and writing English. I'm also a part of TIPS, which is associated with Waltham Group.

HC: What made you decide to come to Brandeis?

RC: Since I was accepted as a midyear, I thought it was a unique experience to have a semester to relax and enjoy myself before going straight to college. I also wanted to attend a great school near Boston with strong academics and an awesome community of students and faculty.

HC: Best thing about being a midyear?

RC: It was easy to make friends since it was a smaller group of people and we all could relate to one another since we are all midyears. Also, it's fun being able to know who is a midyear in classes whereas other students can't tell. 

HC: What do you do for Her Campus Brandeis?

RC: I help out with Social Media - Pinterest and Twitter.

HC: What got you interested in social media and PR?

RC: In this day and age, people all around the world are connecting with one another, whether it's through Facebook, Twitter, Line, Instagram... you name it. Social Media is a vital part in today's society and I want to make an impact.

HC: What are your eventual plans for after you graduate?

RC: I hope to work at Birchbox HQ. 

HC: What is something people wouldn't know about you just from looking at you?

RC: I love to crochet and I play 3 instruments: piano, guitar, and oboe!
