Rachel attended University of the Philippines with a full athletic scholarship where she majored in Physical Education. She has yet to finish her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education in her alma mater.
She represented University of the Philippines for five consecutive years in the annual University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Softball tournament as a team captain on her final year. She also represented the Philippines in Softball tournaments in Asia and the Asia Pacific in Softball World Series in United States of America. She is now a member of Touch Football Philippines national team and participates regularly in long distance running events in the country.
My advocacy is to instill a growth mindset to my students through sports and fitness. I believe that any student can develop his/her skills and talents through consistent effort and hard work, as well as being receptive to lessons and feedback. I aim to help students develop their physical and health literacy as well as the comprehension, capacity, and commitment they will need to lead healthy and active lives.
I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, trekking, skim boarding and cycling. Traveling and Dancing are also two things I am very passionate about.
