All her life, Rachel has known that she was meant to create music in some capacity. After choosing to pursue a career in Classical Voice, her strong sense of social justice, love for storytelling, and desire to cause change led to her increased efforts in composition.

A note from the composer:
I am a lesbian of mixed race, specifically of South Asian descent. My identity has altered my life in immeasurable ways, but it hardly exists in the classical music world. My music is my way of writing myself into existence. If you are like me and want to see yourself exist in music, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will happily do what I can to share your voice.
