Rachel Esposito is one of the most talented, motivated and involved student here at OHS. I’ve been friends with Rachel since middle school and these qualities have only flourished since then. However, perhaps Rachel’s most impressive quality is her ability to juggle so many extra-curriculars, while still managing to be a high honor roll student. Rachel is the Thespian historian, Student Council secretary, battle overall captain since sophomore year, Sportnight captain, Cancer Awareness Treasurer, is in Symphonic Choir, Tri-M , National Honor Society, World Language Honor Society, BBYO, Girl Scouts, and Best Buddies. It is truly impressive that Rachel has time to eat, sleep and breathe, let alone to maintain her high honor roll GPA.
Rachel’s position as Sportnight captain was one of the best things to happen to the white team last year. Rachel’s passion and dedication to Sportnight was admirable to see up close, and a vital component to our victory. Rachel spent hours on end creating lyrics, coordinating dances, and building an environment that was enthusiastic and fun for everyone. I think I speak for most people on the team that we would not have been nearly as successful without her.
As a Thespian Historian, Rachel documents all of the major thespian events and activities. Her fellow thespian Julia Feldis says that Rachel is “super sweet” and “extremely dedicated” to everything she does. Rachel was inducted into the troupe sophomore year and has been involved in ten shows since she began doing theater here, each of which is time consuming endeavor.
To me, what sets Rachel apart from others is that these activities do not simply serve as benefits for her college applications. She doesn’t consider these activities as a burden because of her genuine love for everything she does. Although Rachel is unsure of what her college and career path will be, I guarantee she’ll be successful in anything that she decides to pursue.
