Rachael Hamm is a junior studying Biology and Chemistry at UNC. An avid runner, Rachael previously qualified for the Boston Marathon. After losing her close friend and running partner, Maggie Daniels, who was sexually assaulted and murdered in 2014, Rachael became an advocate against sexual assault. Her work continued to expand as she began working in a research lab that focuses on improving treatment and preventatives for Chlamydia. Chlamydia, surprisingly to some, is the world’s leading cause of preventable blindness. This has led Rachael, the founder of Feelin’ DNA, to incorporate her passion for science and the legacy of her dear friend to oversee the creation of elaborate 3-D models for improving the STEM instruction of visually impaired students.
