Rachel Marini

<p>Hi! My name is Rachel Marini and I am a Junior at Penn State University. I&#39;m majoring in Elementary Education (with an English focus) and plan to minor in special ed. I am a huge book nerd, but when I&#39;m not reading I like to hang out with my family and friends, go to the beach, and just spend time outdoors. Traveling has always been a big part of my life, because I love exploring new places. Going to Dublin is something that I know I won&#39;t regret, and I can&#39;t wait to share my experience with all of you!</p>
