Freshman Rachel Meyer is not the average teenager. As her peers spend their nights out partying, Meyer prefers to stay home and write poetry.
Born in Milton, Florida, she moved to Nebraska when she was in fourth grade after her father lost his job. Her mother resides in Tennessee and her six brothers, the youngest of which is 18 years old, are spread around the country.
Meyer enjoys writing poetry because it gives her room to move and express. She’s free to write whatever, not what anyone tells her to.
Rachel Meyer lives to be unique. She does it in few words, but all words are meaningful.
Her words to the public: “Writing’s pretty cool.”
