Tagging Along with Shannon

► One of my very good friends made her first television debut with VBS Television! I was able to go with her and tag along. I thought it was funny how they mistook me for her manager because I was helping her get ready and lipstick checking and stuff. I just went with it, “Yes, I’m her manager.” I had fun experiencing the behind-the-scenes of television broadcasting. Shannon, congratulations on your debut in front of three million viewers! Also, I made eggs. FTC: This is NOT a sponsored video. VLOG CHANNEL: Rachel’s Life + MAIN CHANNEL: RaleighWritesTV Thank you for watching!

Strawberry Festival 2015

On a typical Memorial Day weekend, my family and I would spend time together, eat, hangout, wear red, white and blue… I would stay at home and take the time to remember soldiers who fought in past wars and provided service for our country. This weekend was different. I wasn’t able to spend time with my family, but I was a part of another special thing. I was still able to take some time to remember our soldiers, but I did more by doing a full weekend of community service, volunteering, and performing for the community. I can easily say this past weekend was the best Memorial Day weekend I’ve ever experienced. So, what is this special thing? The Strawberry Festival. The Strawberry Festival is an annual event held on Memorial Day weekend in Garden Grove. Instead of telling you about it, I can show you ⤵ DAY 1: Volunteered at the Tiny Tots King & Queen Contest, served cake to the community from the World Largest Strawberry Cake, met Forrest Wheeler, and hung out with the Mayor of Garden Grove. …

The Miss Garden Grove & Friends Show

I sang at the Miss Garden Grove and Friends Show. The song “Almost There” from the Disney film Princess and the Frog is very personal. It is my life anthem and reminder of how far I have come as a person and how far I will go. Thank you to the Miss Garden Grove program for giving me endless opportunities to perform on stage this year. I truly appreciate sharing my passion and love for singing with others. Photo // Disney
