Rachel Pepe is a senior at Oakland University majoring in Communication with a minor in Journalism. She has possessed a passion for writing since she was a child, but it was not until her second year at OU that she discovered the field of journalism. Rachel fell in love with the idea of telling stories, and she wanted to publish stories that allowed people's voices to be heard. To put her love for writing to good use, she began working as a Writing Consultant at the Oakland University Writing Center. For the past year and a half, she has been helping students brainstorm, edit and finalize their own pieces. After graduation, Rachel is planning to become a reporter for a local newspaper or magazine where she can continue to do what she loves. She hopes that this will allow her to move up and become an editor in the future.
