My name is Rachel.

I have just graduated from the University of Leeds and I’m not sure what’s next.

I go on long cycles and walks in the woods. I ride horses.  I feel deeply concerned for the environment and politics. I wish the world was more fair.

I found growing up really tough due to a mixture of mental health issues and the social pressures that we are affected by in our day to day lives. Through my relationships with friends both old and met on my travels, I have grown in confidence and been able to reflect on my past (and sometimes present) anxieties.

I speak from the heart, about all sorts of things. From  sexual health to depression, a pinch of politics and a splattering of most things in between.
