My name is Rebecca, but the cool kids call me Becky!  I am currently 22 years old and cannot wait to graduate in May!! I am majoring in Environmental Engineering at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia!  Why environmental engineering you ask? Well that’s an easy question to answer; I want to save the world! What better way to do that than to help people live cleaner, healthier lives.  My goal is to provide the world with cleaner air and water while keeping the damage to the environment at a minimum.


I heard about Bike & Build from a friend who did it last summer.  I worked with his mother’s best friend and every day she would give me updates on how he was doing! It was so exciting to hear what adventures he got himself into!  I thought to myself how awesome would it be to get a chance to do that!  Then one day I got to thinking, why not me?! Why can’t I do that!  So here I am!


I'm extremely excited about spreading the awareness and raising money for affordable housing! I love helping people out and I am extremely greatful of having a place called home. It breaks my heart that this is not an option for everyone and I want to help out anyway I can!


I cannot wait to explore the country! One major thing on my bucket list is to be able to say that I have been to all 50 states!  I have a rule though: to be able to say you’ve been to a state, you must do two things: 1. you must sleep in the state, and 2. you must do something productive in the state.  What better way to start checking some states off my list by building houses in each state?!?!  I have already been to Alaska and Hawaii, so I’m excited to start to conquer the continental US!
