Rachael Abilene Kansas MatchMade Scholarship Finalist

#MatchMade Scholarship Contest: Meet Rachael

Today we’re highlighting our first of five #MatchMade Scholarship Contest finalists – Rachael! Hailing from Abilene, Kansas, Rachael attends Abilene High School (go Cowboys!) and hopes to one day become a journalist and enjoy studying abroad in college.

Rachael was chosen as a #MatchMade contest finalist because of her video entry’s heartwarming nature, and her ability to bring us into her family’s MatchMade world. Her video uniquely told the story of how Match helped to bring her parents together—Rachael’s single mom and a charming soldier overseas—and how love and family know no distance.

Brandon and I first connected on in April of 2009. I had received numerous emails from other guys, but I was not interested in them. When Brandon emailed me, I knew right away he was the one for me.
