Hey Staffer, Whatcha Geekin’ Out About? An Interview with Rabecca Rocha
“Hey Staffer, Whatcha Geekin’ About?” is a new monthly column highlighting the interests and hobbies of GeekGirlCon staffers and Board of Directors. Find out about what makes us tick, what excites us, and what we’re really like when we’re not trying to run a convention.
This month, we’re talking to Rabecca Rocha!
Who are you and what do you do at GeekGirlCon?
Hiya! My name is Rabecca (aka latinageek) and I am a designer for GeekGirlCon.
What do you do for your day job/when you’re not being awesome as a GeekGirlCon staffer?
My day job is Embedded QA Tester at Ember Entertainment and I am a volunteer Cheerleader for Cheer Seattle.
Believe it or not, beyond that I also am a freelance artist and I do Let’s Plays every Sunday for my channel LatinaGeek!
Have you always considered yourself a geek?
I think that I was just drawn to it at such a young age, 9 years old watching Sailor Moon before Catholic school. I think it wasn’t until college where it occurred to me I had been such a huge techie/nerd that I actually embraced it and found my tribe.
What sort of geeky things do you like to do in your spare time?
I think lately my guilty pleasure has been fan theories with series likes Steven Universe, Dragonball Z, or Bob’s Burgers but I love watching anime on crunchyroll and if I do need a new computer it has to be put together to make it legit.
What are you currently geeking out about?
Sie sind das Essen? Nein, wir sind die Jäger!
Attack on Titan season two is LIT FAM! I am so excited that it’s back. I just bought the anthology and it’s absolutely gorgeous with everyone’s depictions of what the universe is like. Also, Game of Thrones is coming back in the summer which I am practically jumping out of my seat about.
Why do you think Attack on Titan is awesome?
I’ve always drooled over excellent story telling, I’ve been writing fanfics since I was 14 and to immerse myself in a world where the story drives the whole show is absolutely thrilling.
Who do you think would be interested in Attack on Titan?
I think that Dragonball Z lovers who need that extra backstory and action would love this series.
What other things are you interested in/do you do in your spare time?
Believe it or not sometimes I go outside, no but, really. I love hiking and being in the great outdoors. I am a huge proponent of self care so being out with pals and breathing in the woods is great for anxiety.
