Lion of the Month: Rebecca Benezra

Rebecca Benezra, who goes by Becca, is currently a sophomore. She is participating in cross-country. Becca’s favorite part about the school year so far is her first cross-country meet, where she met new kids and experienced her hard work paying off. She performed very well in her meets and her best placement was third place. Her practices consist of a 2-4 mile run daily, which helped her prepare for the meet. If Becca were able to have lunch with any person, she would choose Michelle Obama, “because she’s a kind-hearted person and has strong opinions” that she agrees with. In her free time, you can find Becca reading, running, taking care of her house plants, or hanging out with friends. Her favorite books to read are romance novels. Becca’s favorite class at NYHS is political economy with Mr. Kaufman. Lastly, Becca is thankful for the bookstore Third Place Books that is near her house, where she gets all of her good books from.
