Instagram Girl of the Week: Rachael Abels, Coastal Carolina

In case you haven’t noticed, we decided to change up the day we announce our Instagram Girl of the Week. Why? Because it’s Monday, and this will make your day better. Much better.

Meet Rachael from Coastal Carolina University. This 20-year-old junior is a proud member of her sorority Gamma Phi Beta and is also a proud big sis. (Of her biological fam). Find out why she loves all-you-can-eat buffets and how a guy can get her attention below:

My major is public health with a minor in health administration.

My dream job would definitely be to help people through the business end of the medical field. I would love to one day run my own practice.

Last Friday night, was my sister’s high school graduation. My parents and I made our way up to Pittsburgh to watch her walk across the stage. I was so proud of her that I stood up and yelled, “THAT’S MY SISTER. I’M SO PROUD OF YOU!” after everyone was done clapping. Oops haha. I hope I didn’t embarrass my family.

My guilty pleasure is honestly going to all-you-can-eat buffets. I love food so much, and if I can eat as much as I want for a flat rate, I’m all for it. I’ve been told I can eat more than most guys, and I’m perfectly fine with that.

A guy can get my attention if they actually have a unique personality and can stand out from the rest. I love when a guy doesn’t try to fit in with mainstream “boys.” If you can hold my attention instead of being superficial, that’s a huge plus.

The best part about my school is obviously the amazing location right at the beach and also the close-knit student body. It’s more like a family than just a college. And of course I can’t forget about my amazing sisters of Gamma Phi Beta!

If I could take a trip anywhere in the world, it would definitely be to Italy. My dad is Italian and always says he would love to go there. Going somewhere that has meaning to my family would be an amazing opportunity. Plus, the scenery is beautiful and Italian food is to die for.
