Interesting Facts: Rebecca likes to teach composition. She loves
sports, especially basketball. Her hobbies are going to the beach,
shopping, playing the piano, sewing, and oil painting. Having grown
up in Torrance, Rebecca found it difficult to live in Northern
Japan where it snowed all winter. She recalls moving all of her
furniture into one room to stay warm. Driving in the snow was
particularly challenging for her. Once, on an icy mountain road,
her car slid down a mile before finally halting at the edge of a
rice field. She loves Southern California and doesn't plan to
travel any time soon.
