“A story is based on what people think is important, so when we live a story, we are telling people around us what we think is important.” -Donald Miller

Rebecca is an advertising senior who’s completed the Texas Creative sequence as an Art Director with a Bridging Disciplines certificate in Innovation, Creativity, and Entrepreneurship. She identifies herself as an interdisciplinary designer, but really just a curious human. Her experiences include winning $25k for a self-initiated social entrepreneurship project over colorism, being a student designer at IBM, and occasionally sticking googly eyes on inmate objects. At the end of the day, she’s passionate about combining storytelling and social change to create strategic solutions that impact people, communities, and the planet positively.

What does Entrepreneurship mean to you? Learning to fail fast in order succeed faster.
