When she doesn’t have her head stuck in a book, Rachel is an eighth grade activist in Los Angeles, CA. She cares about plastic pollution and the environment and refuses to drink from plastic water bottles – which she repeatedly reminds her friends and family of. She is currently in Roots & Shoots at her school and in all honors classes. Last year, she received the MVP award for her Mock Trial team as selected by the opposing team. In her spare time, she reads Shakespeare cuddled with her two cats and a hot cup of tea.
