Rachel has shown tremendous caring in developing junior students. Whether reading essays or running workshops, Rachel consistently teaches the younger cohorts and role models how to give back to one's community. I hope I can teach others like Rachel taught me!

Lily Tsai

I am grateful to Lily for being such an incredibly supportive mentor and advisor to me during the pandemic. Every time there was a policy change at MIT that affected international students she would reach out to check if it impacted me, let me know she was available if I needed and share whatever information she could around the policy. When I faced a personal setback, Lily was empathetic, available, and helped me prioritize between work and personal responsibilities. Thank you for all your encouragement and support during this difficult year!
