Rachael Pickles

Rachael’s first Rock Challenge event was as a performer in 2004 alongside her twin sister Sarah. Since then she’s done everything from dancing, to helping her school with sets, fundraising and going to other Rock Challenge® events to help sell programmes in the evening! It wasn’t until 2009 when she left for university that she did her first event as a volunteer. Being involved in Rock Challenge® and often taking on the role of a ‘runner’ has helped Rachael gain the skills she needed to achieve her dream career as an Assistant Director in film and television drama. Rachael is really excited to see what new and creative themes each school will come up with next year that will push the standard even higher than the last (if that’s even possible!).
