The Chant

Rachel Maxwell, Social Media Manager

Rachel Maxwell, Social media manager to The Chant, is a senior at NC. Her love for writing and photography drew her to the newspaper staff, but after 3 years of being on staff her love for these hobbies has only grown. Being a member of The Chant has led her to not only find a group of lifelong friends but also made her realize her dream of working in journalism and social media.

Almost all hours of the day Rachel is listening to music. Blasting artists like The 1975, Rex Orange County, and Frank Ocean help her focus and calm her down. If she is not listening to one of these artists she is most likely blasting the Hamilton soundtrack, as Broadway shows are her guilty pleasure.

Other than music some of her favorite things are sushi, her 4 cats, her dog Groot, and her best friend Nati. She also has an piercing addiction, as she as 15 different piercings and plans on getting more in the future.

One of the most important things in Rachel’s life is traveling as she does not like feeling tied down in one spot for too long. Over the years she has traveled out of the country to some of the most beautiful places she has ever been like South Korea, Bahamas, and most recently Iceland. She hopes to one day travel the world surrounded by the people she loves most.

Rachel is full of new ideas to bring to The Chant and wants to make this her best year yet she plans on teaching the people who will be taking over her position on staff next year everything she knows so The Chant can continue to thrive on all platforms.

NC’s new club Girls Who Code hosted a “Snuggle Drive” for homeless people and gathered blankets, socks, jacket, and other warm winter items to donate. To everyone’s dismay, the drive ended with only four homerooms participating. Devastated, the club will regretfully host a promised doughnut party for the first period with the most items. “I just find it really disgusting that people will take time out of their day to stand in line for $300 shoes, or the new iPhone, but they will not use their time to go to Goodwill and buy a $10 blanket or socks for homeless people who have the bare minimum. It takes a celebrity to donate for anyone to do anything,” junior Zoe Brown said.
