Becca Westone attended the Imperial Academy as a journalism major. Upon graduation, she found work with a news agency which she found had pro-Alliance management. Westone wrote an in-depth and highly-specific exposé against them for Imperial HoloVision. The agency was quickly shut down, and she was offered a position within Imperial HoloVision. Westone accepted the offer, and soon became known as one of the agency's best investigative reporters.
