About Becky Lee: After receiving her B.A. Degree in Women's Studies from the University of Michigan, Becky received her J.D. from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. Interested in the prevention of intimate partner violence, Becky has been working on issues concerning survivors during the last 20 years in several capacities including an advocate, a kickboxing instructor, a policy advisor, and as an attorney.
When she was given the opportunity to try out for the reality hit show, Survivor: Cook Islands during the summer of 2006, Becky decided to go for it because she wanted to break media stereotypes of Asian Americans and bring awareness to the prevalence of intimate partner violence. After coming in third,
Becky took most of her winnings to create the non-profit organization, Becky's Fund.
