She grew up between Kenya and South Africa, but Memphis, Tennessee has been her home-base for the last 8 years. She enjoys making art, working with children, and traveling whenever she can.


Rachel has been interning at PS 84 Jose De Diego, located in Brooklyn, with CWP Teaching Artists Molly Goldman and Felipe Galindo.

Most Memorable TATIP Moment

"My most memorable TATIP moment so far was co-teaching my lesson plan with my partner, Mariella Suarez. This was my first time leading a class, and though it was a bit nerve-wracking at first, I feel like I quickly got into the swing of things. Seeing the kids respond to the activity, as well as enjoy it, is something that’s definitely going to stick with me for a long time. This experience gave me some much needed confidence in working in a classroom environment. I’m very excited to see where this new experience will take me."
