As a young child growing up in Jamaica, Racquel lived a good life with many privileges. Coming from a sunny island, moving to New Jersey was a culture shock. The people were different and so were the customs. I was constantly teased and bullied for having a stutter in my speech. It often led to fighting.
Excelling academically from a young age, I showed that I had strong potential. Despite this, my ill-temper began to lead me towards dangerous situations. Eventually, the constant fighting resulted in me being shot. Years later, as a single mother of three, Racquel pursued her education while working in the mental health field. In 2001 Racquel received her AA, followed by her BSW in 2003, and her MSW in 2004. Accomplishing insurmountable goals all while working and providing for herself and her children.
