Rachel has been in a relationship with someone since 3 January, 2016. However, we do not know who he is or what he does for living. We do know that it is a long-distance relationship because Rachel wrote it on one of her photos with him on her Instagram account and we know that he is 30 years old. We also know that they have a dog but we don’t know who does he live with.
She never talks about her past relationships. She was never married and doesn’t have any kids.
Her visit to India
Rachel once went travelling around India. After seeing the conditions in which people from a local village lived in, she decided to start a GoFundMe. She gathered enough money to clean their drinking water, to do the plumbing and to improve their hygiene.
Visiting Ghana in 2015
She worked with a non-profit organization called “Community rise” and went to Ghana with some MLS players who were born there. One of them didn’t see his family for five years and Rachel describes their reunion as the “the most emotional experience”. He didn’t tell anyone that he was coming to visit and as soon as people recognized him, there was a whole crowd of them just following Rachel and him around because he was a much respected person. She claims how those two weeks which she spent there were life-changing for her.
