Rebecca Matwijkow, class of 2015, is an International Relations major whose focus is ethics. Her minor in French led her to SciencesPo in Paris, France to study in the fall of 2013 and to her current position as French Department liaison. Rebecca is member of both the Rowing team and the MHC Democrats. She has also interned at the House Committee on Foreign Affairs in Washington, D.C., worked as a Campaign Fellow in Arizona, and traveled to France as a translator for a California winery. When she’s not rowing or studying, she loves to rock climb at Central Rock Gym or explore the food scene in Amherst or Northampton. What Rebecca values most about Mount Holyoke is “the sense of social justice and intellectual curiosity found in each student” here. Rebecca is thinking about attending graduate school after graduating.
