Photos by Rachel

Hi, my name is Rachel Nicksich. I am 25 years old. I was born in Salt Lake City,UT and attended East High School, the same school where they filmed High School Musical 1,2 &3. One thing you may not know about me is I love to take photos of nature, write poetry and dance. When I get older, it is my dream to work with a professional photographer. Each month I will post 2 photos for you to purchase. I am saving up money to attend the national convention for Ecto Dermal Dysplasias. I have that disorder. Another goal of mine is to educate people about the challenges people with disabilities have. Please share your thoughts about my photography. Have a wonderful day. Love, Rachel
