Rebecca Mironko (she/her) is a Rwandese-American senior at Yale University, majoring in History with a focus on Social Change and Social Movements. Raised in South Africa and later moving to the Boston area, Rebecca’s global upbringing inspires her academic interests in social and political change in Africa and the U.S. Currently, Rebecca is working on two projects – an ongoing multimedia piece about her father, personal histories, archives, and the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, and her senior thesis on the history of the family as a site of carceral imposition in America. Beyond academics, she is a member of Yale’s premier improv comedy group, The Viola Question, and is involved in the American Sign Language community at Yale. Rebecca also works at a ceramics studio where she enjoys wheel throwing and hand building pottery.
