My name is Rebecca Lester and I am currently studying communication (with a minor in law) at Cornell University. I was born and raised in Miami, FL where I developed a passion for language and culture. Because I was exposed to many languages as a child I became fascinated with them and the cultures to which they belonged. As I became older my fascination motivated me to learn Spanish and French in addition to speaking Portuguese and English at home.
As a child I was also fascinated by photography and after suffering a concussion in high school turned to photography as a method of expressing myself. Due to the concussion there was a period of time when I had difficulty using words to express myself and through this learned just how important communication is to me.
Beyond language and photography I use my free time to cook, play soccer, fish, and follow the millennial crowd by watching Netflix. To learn more about me watch the video below and look through the galleries.
