Hi I'm Rachel Schwartz

I love rivers. I'm all about laughter and good times. I love people, cultures, and our friend the earth. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Outdoors, in all it's glory, with family [includes my two pups;)] and dear friends. Good tunes and classic novels. Fast pace of city life [people, eateries, theatres]. Traveling and experiencing all that life has to offer [FOOD!]. Music reaches me unlike anything else. People are so much more than what they appear to be. Life is meant to be natural and we should take care of the good planet we occupy [including the people and critters chilling with us]. The best kind of laughter is the kind that brings you to the floor=]. Currently a missionary in Arizona, formerly a student a Brigham Young University, studying Anthropology with a Business Minor in hopes of rocking the world of Social Entrepreneurship. Sarcastic to the bone with enough energy to power the planet. Daughter of a Deadhead and daydreamer at heart.

Why I am a Mormon

It brings me happiness. Is that too simple of an answer? Not that I was unhappy before I became an active member in the Church, but I was not living up to my full potential. The gospel of Jesus Christ challenges me not to settle for okay, good, or great but to always strive for phenomenal.

How I live my faith

I believe in the power of people. That's why I love the mission and that's why I love the field of social entrepreneurship. With both I offer people the tools that allow them to lift themselves out of their current situations they are in. I only give them a foot up, they take over their lives and do the rest, with the help of God of course;).
