My name is Rebecca Yip and I am 23 years old. I graduated from Baruch College majoring in Graphic Communications. I was born and raised in New York City but my family immigrated from China. I have always been very close with my Chinese culture, and I love everything about it. I love the language, the music, the food, the fashion and did I mention the food? I would love to share my inspirations and experiences as an American Born Chinese on this blog.

What does the logo mean?

Glad you asked. My last name is Yip, and is written as 叶 in Chinese. My initials are R.Y. I designed it so that the Chinese character looks like my initials. I give a big shoutout to my friend and ex-coworker, Ryan Yu. While we were working in a bakery shop one day, he was writing my last name in Chinese, but very sloppy. When I glanced at it very quickly, it looked like he wrote RY instead, but it was actually my last name in Chinese. And I kept that in my mind for months, until I finally found the time to go on Adobe Illustrator and made that idea alive.
