Rebecca Marie Rodríguez
But to most, I’m just Becky.
I am a 24-year-old Cuban / Venezuelan Miami native with a profound love for palm trees, the beach, the color pink, food, music and, of course, Cuban coffee (also known as cafecito – served dark with lots of sugar).
As a child, I use to lay sprawled across the floor drawing different brochures for the “dance shows” I would choreograph, direct and execute alongside my cousins and sisters for my family. At that ripe age of 10, my life plan was as clear as day: a) I was never going to be a prima ballerina because I was too tall which meant that b) I needed to continue to create brochures and campaigns for the things that I loved (which at that time were singing – very badly – dancing and every obnoxious, dramatic, Florida kid’s obsession, Disney World).
Fast forward 14 years and yes, I am doing exactly what I knew I’d be doing as a kid. I graduated in 2017 from Florida International University (go panthers!) with two bachelor degrees – one in marketing and the other in advertising. Now, I’m living the true dream working towards a Master’s Degree in Integrated Marketing from New York University.
Before moving to New York, I worked at a paper company on the administrative team, at a boutique hotel in Miami Beach in sales / marketing and most recently, a record label where I was fulfilling all of my childhood pop star Lizzie McGuire dreams (except I wasn’t on stage, I was just working with the people that were).
At Warner Music Latina, I began in the digital department where I got acquainted with all the big digital streaming platforms like Apple Music, YouTube, Spotify, Tidal, etc. etc. etc. then moved on to run the social media department (aka me and my creative partner in crime). In 3 short years, I learned quickly about how much I really do love music and of course, marketing (especially digital marketing).
When I am not adulting, I travel, upload very edited “on brand” pictures to my Instagram account, enjoy time with family and friends, research different font combinations and of course, fangirl at concerts.
I hope to one day live in Spain for a few months, open my own digital marketing agency in Miami, cage dive in the Great Barrier Reef, edit videos like a pro, paraglide over my favorite city in France, ride an elephant in Thailand and have the pictures to prove it.
