I go by Rachel. This is my face. I was born November 23, 1993.

I was born in the state of Utah - Ogden if you want to be specific. People tend to hate on the state or ignore it completely, but if you can get past the Mormon of it, it’s really beautiful there.

I grew up there until I was 8; from there I moved to Minnesota in ‘02 with my family. My mom’s motive was to be closer to her family, but it turns out they were a bunch of assholes for the most part, so that was a bust. Still, I don’t resent her decision. I know growing up in Minnesota really helped shape who I am. It was a blessing to be able to grow up in an environment that was so open and accepting, and I was able to come into my own without fear of any kind of oppression. And I met some of the most amazing people in the world there. I miss them always, and I miss it there, but there will always be a place in my heart for the midwest.

I graduated high school in June 2012, and less than a week after the ceremony I hitched it back to Utah. I was in a position in my life where I had to make a drastic change. As much as I enjoy the beauty of Utah, it can be hard to live here sometimes. I’m pansexual, athiest, and liberal - let’s just say I don’t quite mesh with the demographic. But my family is here, so even though it may be a bumpy road, I’m glad I can live near my family when I’m not in school. And besides, until I graduate, I’ll only be here for summers and holidays, so it’s bearable.

Speaking of school, that brings us to what’s going on in my life right now - college. I’m currently a sophomore at New York University. I spent my freshman year in London. That’s right, a whole 9 months in Europe! I completely fell in love with everything about London, and it’s been hard being away from it, but I know that I’ll go back many more times before this life is over! And I know that the years ahead of me in New York City are going to be just as fun-filled and memorable!

As far as my academic agenda, I’m taking part in NYU’s Liberal Studies program. I’m majoring in Psychology and doing Pre-Med as well. My ultimate career objective is to become a surgeon, preferably with a specialty in neurology.  But who knows, that could all change at any moment, so we’ll see how things go.

I have a big, dysfunctional family. I hate it and I love it. 

I have 5 sisters and 3 brothers, though none of them are “full” siblings. But I don’t believe in shitty titles like “half” or “step”. They’re my brothers and sisters, plain and simple. They know how to piss me off, as any good sibling does, but I’d be nothing without them. And I’m so grateful to my sister Tana, who lets me live in her house rent-free during summers and holidays. I love living with her and my other sister, Felicia, it has brought us so much closer! They’re a huge support system for me, and I’m glad to have had them in my life.

I lived in the household of a single mom throughout my childhood. She gives me my strength and inspiration. She gets a lot of grief from her family and my siblings, but I will stand by her 100%, even if she does like to push my buttons. She’s one of my best friends, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I miss her the most since I moved away.

Speaking of friends, they can’t go without mention.

Jalen gets his own category. I started talking to him when we were 12 on a Harry Potter forum. He catfished me (before catfish was ever a thing), but we still became besties (and even dated for like a year before he realized he doesn’t like the v). He’s my soulmate and my bestie. He completes me. That’s all.

Right now, I feel like I’m closest to Catherine and Jenna. We were flatmates our freshman year in London, and for our sophomore year in NYC we’ve decided to room together again. They’re my life support! They get all my weird quirks and accept every bit of it! We’re deliciously geeky and strange together, and I love it.

That’s all I can think of for now, if you have questions, feel free to message me and ask :)
