My name is Rachel Palmer and I am a second-year student at CSULB majoring in Psychology. I have never been what I would call an artist, more like what you would call “the artistic type”.  I have always had a passion for the arts and been involved some way or another. Writing is my main form of artistic expression and I truly can not draw or paint at all, not for lack of trying. Recently I have been trying to learn photography, but of course I’ve got a long way to go. I grew up in Long Beach, and southern California is where I feel I will always call home. I can’t wait to continue with my education and the best really is yet to come.
