Rachelle is a student in the Princeton class of 2018 focusing on Race and Public Policy in the African American Studies department. She is originally from Stamford, Connecticut and the daughter of Haitian immigrants. She is very excited to be apart of the first group of students from Princeton to major in our department, as she is very interested in how the construction of race through policy has affected the development of national and state institutions. Rachelle is passionate about helping underserved communities gain access to resources that will allow them to have the tools for a successful future. Moreover, one of Rachelle’s life goals is to work heavily with the Haitian government and people to promote the overall development in her home country.
