Rachel Janovsky is Miss Teen Illinois Galaxy 2014!
Rachel is a sophomore at the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana. She hopes to attend law school in the future to study Environmental Law. Protecting the environment and reducing global warming's consequences are priorities to Rachel.
Rachel's lifelong platform is Diabetes Awareness and Education. Growing up with diabetes was difficult for Rachel because of the comments people would make about diabetes. Her goal is to educate others about diabetes in order to eliminate the hurtful stereotypes surrounding type 1 and type 2 diabetes. She served as the 2014 Northern Illinois Youth Ambassador for the American Diabetes Association. Currently, Rachel discusses diabetes-related topics on her video blog Diabetes Queen.
When Rachel isn't promoting her platform and competing in pageants, you can find her watching Disney movies and spending time with her 20 lb cat named Fluffy.
