The Marionette

My name is Rachel Rose and I'm a senior at HCP. I love creative writing, and journalism allows me to use that love to help others. Just last December, I submitted a short story to the Scholastic Arts and Writing and won a regional award. I am very passionate about acting, singing, and performing in general, and hope to continue doing it for the rest of my life. When I'm not writing or performing, I enjoy reading, watching TV and movies, and listening to music of all kinds. I am a total sci-fi/fantasy nerd, and I love Star Wars, Star Trek, I am also a Broadway musical lover. My favorite Broadway shows are WickedHamiltonDear Evan Hansen and Thoroughly Modern Millie. My favorite books and authors include the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling, any of the Y.A. series by James Patterson, any of the mythology series by Rick Riordan, anything by Rainbow Rowell and anything by John Green. I also like dystopic novels and books with strong female characters. My favorite TV shows (that are still running at the moment) are NCISRiverdaleJane the VirginWhose Line is it Anyway?, Full Frontal starring Samantha BeeLast Week Tonight with John OliverDoctor Who, Sherlock, Game of ThronesSupernaturalStranger Things, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I know, it's a lot. My favorite movies are the Harry Potter movies, pretty much everything in the MCU (especially the Guardians of the Galaxy movies), Wonder WomanThe Princess BrideSingin' in the RainScott Pilgrim vs. the World and the Pitch Perfect movies. I also love pretty much all of the Disney cartoons and Disney/Pixar collabs. When it comes to music, I'll listen to pretty much anything once. I'm an animal lover, and my family has three dogs, all rescues (Adopt, don't shop!!!). Other fun facts about me: I speak French, I'm Jewish, I'm a feminist and activist, and I am super excited to be writing for the Marionette!
