My name is Rachel, I’m 22 and I study international development.

I would describe myself as a socialist and a feminist. I take photos, I feel deeply concerned for the environment and am exasperated as hell with the politics of the 21st century. I struggle with life sometimes.

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.

Let’s Get Real challenges taboos and pressures head on, and speaks frankly about current affairs and society. From body image to sexual health to depression, a pinch of politics and a splattering of most things in between.
