Rachel Girard

University of Maryland

Born and “half raised” in Arizona, my involvement in NCSY began when I moved to Rhode Island and my older sister convinced me to go on a regional event. Since then, I’ve been on countless regionals and have had the opportunity to participate in the Next Step Israel Internships summer program! I love playing lacrosse and Jewish geography! Currently, I am a freshman at the University of Maryland College Park majoring in Biology on my way into the orthodontic field! A fun fact about me is that I met my boyfriend through NCSY and we are determined to get the merch that says “I met my husband/wife through NCSY”.
