Rachel K. Update!
Rachel is currently in her 3rd year of college. She is studying Metallurgical Engineering.

Rachel faces challenges in balancing daily class performance while also making time to be creative and have time to dream about innovative solutions for the future.
She says, “Strength is always available to do and make it.”
