Free-spirited.  Adventurous.  Fun.  Sweet.  Gentle.  Down to earth.  Kind.

Just a few words I would use to describe this lovely high school senior, whom I’m proud to call my niece.  What a delightful afternoon I spent with this young lady who is focused, driven, and fully aware of what she wants out of life. What an honor it was to capture this gentle soul with my camera.

Meet Rachael. . .

What high school do you attend?  I attend Nelsonville-York High School.

What are your plans after graduation?  After high school I plan to move with my parents and start college.

What will you miss most about high school?  I will miss the conversations my friends and I had during lunch.

What do you think is your strangest habit?  I always have my hands by my mouth, so I guess that’s strange.

If you could start high school all over again, would you have chosen to do anything differently?  If I could start high school again I wouldn’t get involved in the boy drama.  

Where do you see yourself in ten years?  In ten years I see myself with a good job and hopefully a little family. 

What is something you can’t live without?  I can’t live without my phone.  I feel lost whenever I don’t have it. 

What advice would you like to offer to underclassmen?  I would tell them to just go with the flow and they will be fine.

Rachael, you are a remarkable person.  Your beauty, evident on the outside, so obviously extends deep within.  I have no doubt that there are no limits to the things you will do.
