Rachel Timberman

Ponderosa High School

Tell us about yourself.

I’m an outdoorsy kind of girl who loves camping and my four dogs. I love school, especially math and science, but I really love athletics! I play the wonderful game of softball, and my favorite thing to do is play board games.

What accomplishment are you most proud of and why?

I’m most proud of earning a D1 softball scholarship—I’ve worked so hard to get where I am and couldn’t be more ecstatic about playing a sport in college!

What are your school interests, involvements and hobbies?

I get the amazing opportunity to play with very talented athletes and some of my best friends on the varsity softball team this year. I’m also a part of the Black Student Union, the American Sign Language Club, and I am a peer counselor.

What’s one thing that not many people know about you?

I’m a video gamer. Whether it’s Mario Kart or Call of Duty, I can beat my older brothers any day of the week.

What are your plans after graduation?

I get to play the sport I love after graduation, so I will continue my athletic and academic career at Lehigh University in Pennsylvania.

Who is your role model?

My grandma, Sue. Unfortunately she passed away my sophomore year from breast and lung cancer, but she was one strong and sarcastic woman—that’s probably where I get it from!

Describe your career aspirations.

I tend to watch a lot of crime shows (more than I should) and fell in love with the idea of working in a CSI lab or as a medical examiner. Regardless, I want to pursue a medical career.

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?

I would go backpacking through South America and see the rainforests and waterfalls.
