Becky Fuller grew up in Medford, Oregon and moved to Seattle, Washington to study Informatics at the University of Washington. During her time at UW, she enjoyed taking classes for her minors in Music and Labor Studies. She was a student leader of United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS), a grassroots organization that runs internationally-coordinated campaigns for workers’ rights. From 2016-2018, she joined the national student coordinating committee of USAS and helped with their national digital communications strategy. She enjoys using her skills as a photographer and graphic designer to support the efforts of social justice movements and grassroots organizations. As a student of tech herself, Becky is drawn to combating the gendered and racialized disparities seen in STEM fields.
