ABOUT Rachel

Azusa Pacific University, Senior

MY COLLEGE KICKS ASS BECAUSE…

Everyone is so helpful and friendly. That’s the plus about Christian colleges in So Cal; people are just super chill and loving.

THE COOLEST PLACE TO PARTY ON CAMPUS IS…

In the chapel on Sunday mornings at worship. Just kidding! We’re pretty near L.A., so usually we’ll just drive into town to rage.

OH YEAH, AND YOU SHOULD PROBABLY KNOW THAT…

I’m going to be a lifer for the Army. I love soldiers. I love this country. And I love serving.

AT SCHOOL, I’M INVOLVED IN…

Psi Chi (Psychology Honors), Army ROTC.

IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

Taiwan. My parents are living there right now, and I miss them so much!

WHY DO YOU WANT TO BE MISS COED 2016?

Besides the bragging rights to rub in the faces of my middle school bullies (yeah, up yours Nigel! I do have more curves than a math book!!), it’s being a role model. I love how Miss COED 2016 emphasizes hot girls with college degrees. I hope to add the BAMF quality too. Wouldn’t it be great if beautiful women were not only educated, but also empowered and strong as well? I hope one day to serve as a role model for other women just like how Angelina Jolie does for me.

IF YOU COULD GIVE OUR READERS ONE PIECE OF ADVICE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Don’t try to be different. Just be you. That’s what makes you unique.
