Palisades Charter High School

Rachel Bernstein

Rachel is a senior at Palisades Charter High School. She was awarded a National Silver Medal in Personal Essay and Memoir by the Scholastic Art and Writing awards. In Rachel's imagination, she lives in Boston and has a beautiful reading nook perpetually overflowing with books and teeming with rock music. She considers herself an avid fan of Theodore Roosevelt, Cassandra Clare, Frank Sinatra, and U2 and often spends time that would be better suited for homework and writing fiction instead making Spotify playlists.
