Rachel loves photography and painting and uses them to raise important issues about nature and the environment. Her goal is to inform and involve the public, focusing today on problems from litter. One way she has done this is by creating a four-foot green sea turtle sculpture made entirely from litter she collected in Stuart. She studied the anatomy of the turtle, designed, drew detailed pictures, and planned dimensions. Her finished work will be displayed at her school. She believes it is our responsibility to care for our environment and that each person has the power to make a difference. She continually engages in community art, helping with art festivals, painting murals, and participating in art exhibits. She is a member of the National Honor Society, Spanish Honor Society, and Art Honor Society. She wants to major in art in college and continue participating in community services. Rachel is a student at The Pine School.
