RIPR – Think back to your days as a high school student when, perhaps, your days included a challenging mix of intellectual excitement, social challenges, meaningful friendships, spasms of insecurity, and, if all went well, wonderful developmental leaps. Whatever your personal trajectory during those years, most likely you yearned for ways to fit in, belong, and weather whatever adolescent challenges found their way to your door. Some teens are fortunate to find remarkably creative ways to do just that, as with 15-year-old Rachel Wasser.
Rachel Wasser is a sophomore at Providence Country Day School. She enjoys playing the ukulele, singing and is currently in a 4-girl band with her friends. Rachel lives with her family in Cranston.
