Rachel’s Bio

Your major: Criminal Justice

Your hometown: Mission Viejo

Where do you live now? Salt Lake City

What are you passionate about? I’m passionate about reading. I love being immersed in another world and going on an adventure with the character and just being able to live that with them.

What is your favorite class (or classes) at SLCC? I really like History of Rock and Roll because I’m learning a lot about how current and past genres of music came to be, and i’m also really enjoying Radio Performance

Which actor/actress would play you in your life movie? I’m gonna have to say Jennifer Lawrence, just cause her personality reminds me a lot of mine.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I hopeful am finished with college (hallelujah), in a stable job and maybe married, I don’t think I’ll be ready for kids at that point but maybe in the future.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? I would have the super power to copy other peoples super powers, cause all I would have to do is touch someone else with a superpower and boom, I have their superpower, so like really it’s every superpower ever.

Something about you that other people would be surprised to know: I can read up to 500 words per minute, not out loud obviously but like in my head. I used to read a lot, and still do, as a kid and so now, in my old ripe age of 19, I can read pretty quickly.

Favorite sports or sports teams: I don’t actually watch or keep up with sports. Most of my time is spent watching movies or Netflix.

Favorite food: Ice Cream

What’s your favorite place to eat? I love going to Chinese buffets cause whenever my family has something to celebrate, we always go out to eat to a Chinese buffet together.

What was your favorite cereal as a kid? I liked corn flakes because I used to love shoveling spoonful after spoonful of sugar into the bowl, my mom stopped buying sugar for that very reason.
