RWF Teen Spotlight: Rachel Martin, RWF Class of 2022

RWF Senior. Rachel attends Detroit School of the Arts where she excels as an accomplished musician and scholar. She has received a full scholarship to study music business and composition in the fall. 

"This foundation is somewhere we express ourselves as well as learn about each other and the different careers paths of important, powerful, successful, and intelligent women who chose to master and dominate their field of work. These women and sometimes men come in and explain their field, why they chose this or how they ended up in that field but most of all they shared their mistakes. The mistakes showed they tried but they never gave up. This Foundation extends opportunities like tutoring, mentoring, and so much more so we can make our mistakes but we’ll have people as our backbones to help us get up and keep trying." 

- Rachel, RWF Class of 2022
