Rebekka reflects on her UBC years:
I had a great experience at UBC. Three years of hard work and great design opportunities. UBC gave me the opportunity to work hands-on on many projects while shadowing great designers.
UBC is a place where you get what you put into it. I worked in the wardrobe department while being a student, so I pretty much lived in the Freddy Wood Theatre. I enrolled to take set design classes and somehow found myself in Alison Green‘s Costume History class and then it all just happened from there. While studying costume and set design I was very please with my professors. Alison Green and Robert Gardiner were extremely helpful and good at teaching us their trade. I started working out there in the real world before I graduated as Alison and Robert recommended me for theatre design gigs.
