Hello Everyone! My name is Rebecca; however, you are more than welcome to call me Becca. I have been living and attending university in Prague for a little over a year now and I am loving every minute of it. Some of my hobbies would include rock climbing, camping and café visits.
Hometown: Bellingham, WA, USA
Fun fact about hometown: Bellingham has its own city flag that represents the Bellingham Bay, Mt. Baker and the people who live there.
Occupation: Intern @ Locus Workspace/Student
Field of study: International Relations and Diplomacy
Why did you decide to study International Relations and Diplomacy?
After graduating from Western Washington University, I decided to continue my studies and earn a master’s degree in International Relations and Diplomacy. What better way to understand International Relations than traveling all over the world and understanding the plethora of other cultures? I decided to study this particular area because when I start my career, I want everyone from every background to feel welcome and comfortable while working in a collaborative environment. There is still a lot of misunderstanding and discrimination in the world, my goal is to change the misconceptions and allow growth and positivism.
Did you already have an idea of what a coworking space was before you joined Locus?
I did not know that much about coworking spaces before I joined Locus. However, now that I have tried it, I do not know if I could ever go back to using a regular office!
Why did you decide to be an intern at Locus?
I decided to work at Locus because it embodies that type of work I would like to be involved in for the rest of my life. I love to work with people and getting to learn new skills is just a bonus opportunity. By working at Locus, I will have the pleasure of getting to know new people and hopefully help them achieve some of their goals.
What are some of your goals for this internship?
Some of the goals I have set for myself during this internship is to meet as many people as possible from a variety of different backgrounds. Another goal of mine is to gain further knowledge in the world of event planning and to help everyone network while building friendships in the process.
What kind of responsibilities do you have as a community manager?
My main responsibilities as a community manager will be to update the community, members and the public, on social media sites regarding Locus events that are happening; events that give everyone the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals while having a fun time. The last key responsibility as a community manager is making sure everyone I encounter is having a great experience and that they have everything they need in order to succeed.
