Rachel is a journalism student at the University of Oregon's Clark Honors College, where she also pursues gender studies and economics. She is passionate about the power of creative, strategic communication and hopes to one day use the powers of advertising for good, not evil. Her writing has been published in several campus publications, including The Emerald and The Siren. This summer Rachel will be spending six weeks in Accra, Ghana doing a media internship through the University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication.
When she isn’t hard at work, Rachel is probably sketching in a coffee shop, singing too loud, or gushing over someone else’s dog. She hopes to keep telling interesting and important stories long into the future. This siren's song is strong and we are excited to see how far she will go.
Keep up to date with Rachel's journey on twitter @BennerRachel and check out some of Rachel's recent student work and stay tuned for her upcoming Vox Siren blogs.
Thank you Rachel for working with us to prioritize the stories, skills and safety of all women.
