Rachel Barnes

Who am I? Generally speaking at some point in life everyone is asked this question and the typical response is a name. My name is Rachel Barnes with no extra letters added to Rachel and an “e” in Barnes. According to my doctor I am 5’ 4” despite my attempts to be taller. I was born in Atlanta, GA and have been here my entire life. I have a dog and two younger brothers I have yet to train while my dog has successfully learned to do all but make pancakes and text. Prior to moving here to Athens I lived in Fayetteville, Georgia, a smallish town roughly forty minutes to an hour away for Atlanta depending on traffic and who is driving. I am the proud driver, not quite owner, of a 2007 Toyota Tundra and its name is Rico Suave. While I cannot fully remember why I named it Rico Suave I am still rather happy with the name. I consider myself to be very bright and outgoing and I enjoy meeting new people and trying new things. Over the years I have had A LOT of experience with writing and greatly enjoy it. Though English is not my intended major, it has definitely been a cornerstone in my education and I plan to continue to apply what I have learned in this English 1102 class to future ventures.
