Personal Summary

I put my heart and soul in whatever I am doing: whether it is serving food to the elderly or writing. I love to learn and grow as a writer by adopting a style while putting my own spin on it. When I was a child I loved the idea of getting paid to write. I started with being one of the two editors for the middle school paper, taking advanced writing classes in high school, and eventually majoring in Communications Media in college.

 Currently, I am spending the summer as a culture intern at Media Research Center in Reston, VA. I am writing daily articles commenting on our current culture with a conservative perspective on newsbusters.com. My experience here has taught me how to hone my writing style, fact check, find article ideas by becoming a better writer through this process.

 I would love to join your team and “Impact Culture for Christ.”

I can be reached at rachelelainepeterson1@gmail.comor 815-985-9923. Am more than willing to relocate and love the idea of a new exciting adventure in a brand new city.
