Coqui Charities is dedicated to revitalizing the vibrant culture of Puerto Rico.
My name is Rebeca Almeda Nieves, I live in Caguas, Puerto Rico. From a very young age I was fascinated with drawing and painting. Since 7th grade I did homeschooling which gave me a lot of time to practice and perfect my work focusing in fine arts. I also play the oboe since I am seven years old at the Escuela Libre de Música in Caguas, PR. Coursing my 11th grade I started to put together my art portfolio to continue my studies in the United States. I was accepted at four art universities, one of these, Columbia College Chicago offered me a $20,000 scholarship for each year.
