Rachel Kwasnica

Hi, my name is Rachel and this is my first year as Assistant Manager at Walsingham House at Abbotswick.

I have spent two years as a volunteer on the Team prior to this and I feel like this is the next step in developing myself as a discern a career working with young people.

This year I am hoping to develop my leadership skills as well as learning to drive and continuing to serve the young people of Essex and East London on retreats where they have the opportunity to have fun and enjoy themselves, as well as developing a closer, personal relationship with their faith and with Jesus.

I love music and going to concerts of my favourite artists as well as visiting new places. I have family who live in America, so there is nothing more I love than flying out there to see them, which I hope to do so soon. I also love animals, especially my puppy Mika who I have been helping to train throughout the pandemic whilst we were living at home, but working virtually by creating online resources for young people throughout 2020 and 2021.
