Here’s a bit more on Rachel!
Hometown: Londonderry, NH
Favorite part of PRSSA: PRSSA has done a fantastic job in further educating me about the different aspects of the PR industry and potential career paths. In addition to that, I’ve made countless friends throughout my years involved in this organization that I may not have met otherwise.
What’s one activity you like to do with friends and one activity you like to do alone? With friends, I enjoy going out in the city – whether that be trying a new restaurant, going shopping, attending an event or just walking aimlessly and exploring Philadelphia. When alone, I enjoy binge-reading novels and watching all types of movies.
A favorite quote: “That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald
Your favorite restaurant in Philadelphia? Fat Salmon – I’m constantly craving sushi!
What’s something you would like to accomplish before graduating? Before I graduate, I plan on completing two more internships.
If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? Either Elizabeth Bennet from “Pride and Prejudice” or Jo March from “Little Women” – I can’t decide.
Dream travel destination? In my ideal world, I someday move to Paris and live there for a couple years.
