What can FIPers talk to you about?

Switching concentrations; exploring Boston, mental health; how you're not ready for the cold; etc, basically feel free to approach me about anything!!

Why should a first-year choose FIP?

To meet other internationals (the best people on campus); get a chill, not-at-all-overwhelming first look at Harvard; have fun with some really amazing people.

Leader Bio

Rebeca was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil and will be forever partial to Brazilian food (hit her up for trips to Oliveira's an incredible Brazilian restaurant in Somerville, near Cambridge), weather and scenery - and soccer obviously. She is a rising junior living in Cabot House (quad life, best life) studying Economics with a secondary in Government with the hope of eventually going back to Brazil to work in government or non-profits. On campus, Rebeca is involved with the IRC through staffing many of Harvard's Model UN conferences as well as competing for Harvard's travel team; volunteers in Cambridge through Pets as Therapy; and serves as co-president of HUBA, the Harvard Undergraduate Brazilian Association. Rebeca loves meeting new people and giving advice, so do hit her up for anything you might need, be it to gossip, vent, or anything else. She looks forward to welcoming you all to Harvard in the fall!
