Rebecca TeKolste joined Yale after returning from Peace Corps service in Guatemala, where she worked on the maternal and child health project with a rural Mayan community. There, she worked with indigenous mothers on issues of nutrition and healthy pregnancies and made the greatest friends anyone could imagine. After her Peace Corps service, Rebecca worked on evidence-based policymaking and program evaluation through the Pay for Success Initiative at the Urban Institute. At Yale, Rebecca focused on quantitative methodologies for social impact and continued her devotion to public health in Latin America. Among her favorite projects were Student Partnerships for Global Health in Nicaragua, Global Social Entrepreneurship in South Africa and India, the Yale Journal of International Affairs podcast, and Sunday brunch with her dearest friends from all over the world. She is honored and delighted to be a Presidential Management Fellowship Finalist for the 2018 year. Although she’s still narrowing down her post-graduation plans, she’s crossing her fingers for a few options in the works.
