I met Rebeccea on my first ever day at Swinburne, not as a PhD student but rather as a young undergraduate visiting summer student many years ago. I was from Queensland and was so overwhelmed moving, living and working in a brand new city, where I knew no-one. Thankfully my summer desk was right across from Rebecca, and her bright smile and warm nature made me feel right at home during my 3 month project! She has been a mentor to me ever since, guiding me through the wild ride that is PhD and inspiring me to be a strong bad-ass women in science. Thank you for being an inspiration to so many Rebecca!
