Rebecca is 21 years old, and originally from Bethesda, Maryland. She's a senior at Northwestern University with a double major in musical theatre and pre-med. She completed the MDA Overseas Volunteer Basic Course two years ago in Tel Aviv, but was so enthralled by the program that she returned this past summer to complete the advanced course. The additional level of training allowed her to work in areas that were considered more at-risk during this past summer's Operation Protective Edge. Thanks to the time spent with MDA, she is considering a career in medicine.
