Rebecca Isaak

Rebecca is a Canadian graduate student currently studying International Development. While she loves her studies, she is excited for school to end and her career to begin - one reason she chose this field is because how it allows for long-term travel and a meaningful career. During her undergraduate degree, she traveled with Semester at Sea, an exchange program that takes undergrads around the world (literally) on a ship. While abroad she kept a blog, which helped her re-discover a love for writing. Her favourite colour is purple, she is horrible cook, and in August she will be traveling to Lebanon for a year.
