Personal: Rebecca Claire Ward is the daughter of Bill and Beth Ward...She has one brother named William....Becca fenced all through her high school years and also participated in whitewater kayaking for three years...Whitewater kayaking is still a hobby of hers, as well as photography...She has a little bit of everything on her i-Pod including The Fray, Seether, Kelly Clarkson, Sugarcult, Snow Patrol, OK GO; pretty much everything except screaming metal and country...Her favorite movies are Little Miss Sunshine and The Usual Suspects...House is her favorite television show...Says she doesn't really have just one role model as she thinks there are values and ideals that you can attain from anyone-either what to do, or not to do-she tries to have a wide spectrum of influences instead of a single idol...When asked what makes her a special and unique person is the fact that she can tie knots with her feet.
