She has always been passionate about creating positive social change by encouraging compassion and tolerance in both her local and global communities.  Although she was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Becca developed a significant network in the community as a first year Fellow. In fact, one of her favorite things about East Liberty is walking down the street and being warmly greeted by the community members with whom she has collaborated with closely this past year. She is excited to continue developing Repair’s current programs and ideas and create vibrant new content with this year’s cohort.
