Rebecca Tripp

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Temple University ‘15
Major in Graphic and Interactive Design
Hometown: St. Paul, MN

Although she’s a Minnesotan at heart, Becca is looking forward to trading the cold winters of the North for the heat of Thailand. When she’s not working as a graphic designer/making creative wonders, Becca enjoys exploring whatever city she’s currently in, downhill skiing, dry humor and trying new food/restaurants. She's excited to work with the awesome CMRCA crew, sample as much Thai cuisine as possible, and to switch from skiing down rocks to climbing up them. Not as excited about: inevitably facing her arachnophobia.

The sunshine seeped listlessly through the clouds, casting a muted glow on her ponytail as she twirled it, studying the map. She had gone too far.

Go climb a rock. Or read a book. Or eat some pho.

Bring on the chocolate rivers of the Delta.

I'll be located a convenient-to-calculate 12 hours away in Singapore next year -saving myself that daily mental math I really should do more of :P Hmm..what else about me?
