    My name is pronounced ROCK-KELL. Yes, I know most people spell it Raquel but, I was born with this name and it came with the spelling.

    I live in New York -- one of the greatest cities in the world. I upped and moved here in July 2014 with no job, no place to stay, and no idea what I would do. Spontaneity is one of my stronger personality traits. 

    I am originally from Raleigh, North Carolina. Think fried foods, sweet tea, tons of trees and of course, Southern hospitality. Although the South will always hold a place in my heart, I believe New York is more of a home to me. The people, the food, the culture, the diversity -- it's almost as if New York structured it all after my own personal being.
