Rachel Sauls is the spring 2020 Anita McLeod Intern at RCWMS. She grew up in Durham, but has always been a Tar Heel, and is currently a senior at UNC-Chapel Hill. Rachel is majoring in English and Comparative Literature with a double minor in Jewish Studies and Hispanic Studies. Her concentration within her major is Science, Medicine, and Literature. Rachel loves exploring ways in which theological narratives around gender and health shape individual and communal experiences. While interning at the Resource Center, her project will be focused on women’s intergenerational friendships. She is also helping Amy Dosser with the next phase of the Meinrad Craighead project and helping out in the office in a variety of ways.
When she isn’t at the Resource Center, you can find Rachel finishing up her UNC coursework, working with young people at Emmaus Way, and giving on-campus tours as a UNC Admissions Ambassador. Rachel also enjoys reading memoirs, laughing with her friends, sipping on iced almond milk lattes at local coffee shops, and spending time with animals. In her free time, she walks up to strangers on UNC’s campus and asks, “May I please pet your dog?”
Rachel will begin a Master of Divinity program in August. She is not sure what life will look like after that, but she is interested in hospital chaplaincy, nonprofit work, and eventually pursuing a PhD. Rachel says she is grateful for the opportunity to learn and grow in the RCWMS community this semester, and we are so happy to have her with us.
