About Rachel

Myrtle Avenue Mural

My name is Rachel and I’ve been writing my entire life.

My first “publication” was when I was in the second grade and wrote a story about two mice becoming friends, and it ended up in the yearbook. By High School, I was “spitting rhymes” in our advanced poetry class, attending poetry slams, and winning contests. I won the creative writing award during my High School graduation and my poem was featured as a symbol of our generation in our senior yearbook.

I went to college to focus on art and code, and while I still wrote, I had a bit of a poetry hiatus for a few years. Luckily, I found myself again, and so I’ve got a lot of poetry and stories sitting around. I thought it was high time to put it some place. For now, that place is here.

For the sake of background, I grew up in Queens, hung out in Brooklyn, and now live in the Bronx. As a young Puerto Rican woman, I see a lot, and feel a lot. With all the emotional, cultural, and social influences that I’ve been exposed to growing up – I’ve always used writing to make sense of those things in my life.

Hope you’ll enjoy. Feel free to follow me on twitter!
