Philosophy '03


Rebecca Theodore is a professional writer, political commentator, author and public speaker based in New York City. Rebecca says that she decided to study philosophy to understand the meaning of life, as well as to use it to enter law school to be able to apply reasoning to the fallacies of everyday arguments. Although she did not follow the plan to pursue law, she says: “The study of philosophy helped me to build my own world, emboldened my independent thinking skills, and championed my calling into becoming a prolific writer and public speaker. Philosophy helped me to understand who I was and my purpose in the universe.”
