Indiana University–Purdue University
Rachel is ecstatic to be involved with the Jefferson Awards Foundation in this inaugural group. Though she grew up in small towns, she is hitting the big city of Indianapolis to study as a double major in Neuroscience and Biology at IUPUI. Besides being a full time student, Rachel loves to sing opera (continuing 5 years of study), participate in International Student Mentoring, and spend time in the research labs around campus. After finishing undergraduate, she is looking to getting a degree in genetic counseling with a specialization in neurodegenerative disorders.
