This week we’re getting to know Rebecca from our UK office. (Yup! We’re global!) When she’s not bawling over a Queer Eye episode, you can probably find her bench-pressing a surprising amount of weight at the gym.

What’s your favorite movie?
“The Parent Trap.” I totally ship the parents. Elizabeth James has the best Givenchy dresses
Netflix, Hulu or something else?

Pad Thai that cost 90p a plate. Straight out the wok, so hot it burns your mouth. Bonus points for lashings of fish sauce.

Koh Chang, Thailand

Angkor Wat, Cambodia
If you could choose one superpower to have, what would it be and why?

If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I’d meet my Nan who passed away when I was little. I wish I got to know her better and would love to hear all about her life experiences now I am old enough to understand. I think she’d love to see how grown up her Granddaughter has become.

No, just no
Yanny or Laurel?

‘There is no one other like you and for that reason alone you are beautiful’
How would you spend 1 million dollars?
I’d buy a cottage in Devon and a helicopter so I can get down to the coast without traveling on the M5 (can you buy both of those for 1 million?)
I’m pretty darn strong. I love weight lifting and my deadlift PB is 100kg (220lb)
Would you rather know how or when you were going to die?
When. Then I’d be able to make the most of the time I have left
Choose 1: 3 inches in height, look 10 years younger, eat without gaining weight, $200k?
$200k to buy my first house
