Rachel Fishman is an English major with a concentration in Professional Writing & Rhetoric and a minor in Business Administration. She is passionate about traveling, a desire that only increased after her semester abroad in Denmark during Fall 2013. Rachel was a part of the Mountain Group for the Highway 64 Project, an experience that provided her with a whole new perspective on North Carolina. The mountains were even more alluring than she ever imagined, possessing a distinct quality that is drawing her back. Her pieces on the blog include a profile on Franklin and its charitable mindset, a feature on Appalachian Toys, a travelogue on the hotbed of advice available in coffee shops, and reviews of Folk Festival food and wine shoppes, among others.
