My name is Rachel Poli. I’m a 23-year-old who resides in Massachusetts.
I AM A DAUGHTER, SISTER, AND AUNT.
I am the youngest of three girls. I live with my mother, father, and one older sister, Kris. My other older sister lives with her husband and my handsome baby nephew.
I AM AN ANIMAL LOVER.
I have a cat named Chase, a dog named Chip, a turtle named Raph, a 56-gallon fish tank that currently homes 13 fish, and a 5.5-gallon tank that homes Donny, my Betta Fish. I brought all these animals home and hope to bring home more someday.
I AM A STUDENT.
After high school, I graduated with my Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education in May 2013. In May 2015 I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in English Studies: Creative Writing. I’m still indecisive about going back for my Master’s.
I AM AN EDUCATOR.
I worked as a teacher’s aide in a special education preschool for three years. I’m also the director of my church’s Sunday school program as well as one of the main teachers.
I AM A NANNY.
I’ve been nanny for eight years, watching children with ages ranging from two years to 17 years. Some children with disabilities, some without. I’ve worked for multiple families over the years, but I currently work for one family now.
I AM A GAMER.
Video games are one of my hobbies. I love to play Pokemon, Ace Attorney, The Legend of Zelda, Sonic the Hedgehog, Mario, and much more. My sister and I run a video game blog together called Double Jump.
I AM A READER.
I enjoy reading books from middle grade to young adult to adult. I especially enjoy reading mystery novels. I love going to Barnes & Noble and the library. I prefer physical books, but I do have a Kindle and absolute love it. So, I guess you can say I play for both teams. I’m an avid book reviewer as well.
I AM A BLOGGER.
I started this blog to get my writing out there as I hope to be published someday. I update this blog on a daily basis. I also have guest bloggers on my site twice a month.
I AM A WRITER.
I have been writing since I was 10-years-old starting off with simple FanFiction. I mainly write children’s, middle grade, and young adult. However, I have tried my hand at scripts, poems, and short stories and I have some ideas for those as well. I am not yet published, but I’m on my way.
