    Rebecca



    Chicago, Ill.

    23

    Financial Journalist


    Rebecca, 23, was named "One of 20 Teens Who Will Change the World" by Teen People magazine in February 2000 and was awarded a Point of Light by President Clinton. She graduated with honors from the University of Chicago, earning degrees in economics and pre-law. As a Chicago-based investment banker, she structured mergers and acquisitions, as well as equity and debt transactions. Prior to that, she traded short-term interest rate options on Citigroup's foreign exchange desk in London. Outside of business, Rebecca founded a non-profit organization, raising over $750,000 to support disenfranchised children. In conjunction with this effort, she lobbied state and federal government officials, speaking at a wide range of national conferences and sharing the stage with Al Gore and Colin Powell, among others. She also reported on-air, wrote and helped produce hard news, features, and entertainment segments for a weekly show on an NBC affiliate in her hometown of Minneapolis. She is currently a financial journalist in Chicago.

    A contender. I think she will keep her wits about her when the pressure is on.

    She's smart, and we all know this. I dont know what it is about her, but she seems really mean and conceited. I guess it's the random speck of sea-green clothing she has on.

    She listed Tommy Boy and Kill Bill as favorite movies on NBC.com. Instant favorite

    She'll make it far in the competition, I think.

    I'll have to see the season premiere of TA4 before I decide whether or not I'll use her image as my avatar. So far, she seems to be a potentially tough candidate.

    My friends and I took a vote and she's totally the prettiest girl. Friendly and approachable. I'm hoping she'll stay around b/c she's also looks the most pulled together and capable.

    Even in that short intro, she has already made a good starting impression Most likely one of my ptre-show favorites, even though I havent looked at the other contestants yet
    Well, I was thinking when he said, "king of the jungle," I was, like, "Well, during the first challenge you would still be lost in the jungle if Jim and I hadn't, like, led you out. - Brooke Struck on Judd
