A native of North Carolina, USA, Rebecca has lived in China for over five years. She previously lived in rural Yunnan working with the non-profit organization Teach for China. Rebecca believes in the future potential of every child as well as the important roles that education and public health initiatives can play in breaking cyclical poverty. During her time in Yunnan, Rebecca and other Teach for China Fellows fundraised and implemented Education in Sight programs to provide eye exams and eyeglasses for their students. Almost all of the students were from low income families and had never received an eye exam from a doctor. Through Education in Sight several students with poor eyesight were able to receive glasses and see the world clearly for the first time. Rebecca is passionate about the positive impact Education in Sight can have and enjoys having fun, meaningful conversations with others
