Rachel began participating in Destination Imagination at the age of 14 and credits much of her success to the program. “I know I would not be where I am today had it not been for Destination Imagination. Destination Imagination gave me room to learn about myself,” says Rachel Hale. “To this day, I have found that anytime I create, I discover another part of who I am. I am so grateful for my experience at Destination Imagination, and I am so excited to perform at Global Finals this year! There is no family like a DI family, and I cannot wait to fall back into the support of its loving arms.”
