Rachel Grate is a recent graduate from Scripps College, where she studied English and Gender & Women's Studies. She has a slight Jane Austen obsession, and there may or may not be a Jane Austen action figure on her desk at this very moment. She’s an avid reader, an enthusiastic eater, a slow but determined runner, and a proud feminist. She’s also a big fan of smiles. Follow her on Twitter @RachelSGrate. You can also find her writing at Mic News and Eventbrite.
