A fairly anxious and overly ambitious gal, Rachel began her endeavors into the blogging world through the likes of Tumblr. What began as a simple past-time in her high school years, The Rachel Story now serves as a creative outlet for Rachel to showcase her writing, style, photography and more...

Rachel is a graduate of University of California, San Diego with a B.A. in Communication and a minor in Business. She is inspired by everything around her and takes time to work on her current interests such as photography. An LA native, she’s now living amongst the eccentric crowds of NYC to pursue some lifelong dreams or whateva (but seriously, she's here to hustle and she has plans to make her parents--and herself--very proud). You might catch her scarfing down dried mangoes from Trader Joe's, discovering new music to listen to (shoutout to Spotify), or simply trying her best to get on the right train as she maneuvers her way throughout the city. She also creates videos for her channel on YouTube.

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear through the earth gives way, though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah."

Psalm 46:1-3
