Hi I’m Rachel! You probably already know me as one of the cast members of the A&E Emmy-winning docuseries “Born This Way” – thank you for watching the show! But what you may not know is that I am a public speaker, too! I love to speak to groups to help inspire people to realize that those of us with intellectual disabilities can do whatever we set our mind to do!
