Rachel says balancing work and play can get tricky

COLFAX, WA - Colfax High School Senior Rachel Robinson always brings her "A" game whether it's in class or playing sports.

"For me eligible is having straight A's," said Robinson. "If I don't have straight A's, then it's like failing for me."

Or in sports.

"I play volleyball, basketball, and softball," said Robinson.

Rachel says that she enjoys all of her classes, and loves all three of her sports equally, even though balancing work and play can get tricky.

"I come to school in the morning, go to all my classes, and then everyday after school," said Robinson. "I'm going to one practice or another depending on the season."

Rachel said she looks up to her coaches at school, and to her parents at home.

"My dad's always been a super hard worker, and he's always pushed me and my siblings," said Robinson. "You know, to work hard and do our best and everything so that's always been one of the people I look up to."

When Rachel graduates, she plans on studying occupational therapy at Lewis-Clark State College.

"With occupational therapy, you get the opportunity to work with autistic kids and things like that," said Robinson. "And I just think that would be a good career for me and I would enjoy it a lot."
