About Becca Havian
Becca graduated from Bates College in 2019 with a BA in Rhetoric. During her time at Bates, Becca was a Mediation and Restorative Justice Fellow, Captain of the ultimate frisbee team, and President of the school’s all-female a cappella group. She also worked on the literary magazine, and led backpacking trips as an outdoor orientation leader for incoming students.
In the year following her graduation, Becca bopped around quite a bit; she learned about effective leadership on a NOLS Rocky Mountain course, WWOOFed in Spain and France, and worked on the Warren campaign as an Organizing Fellow.
Now, Becca welcomes the sense of community that Chewonki so lovingly offers, and is eager to foster a warm, inclusive environment for students. She believes that Chewonki presents a unique opportunity for students to expand upon their comfort zones, while remaining true to who they are:
“We tell our children that ‘brave’ means feeling afraid and doing it anyway… I do not want my children to become people who abandon themselves to please the crowd.” (Glennon Doyle, “Untamed”)
Her favorite things include: dancing (poorly), cooking with good company, playing Five Crowns, and scouring Spotify for new music.
