Rachel C. Cotton

Rachel Cotton is a loving wife and mother of two, who believes in serving others altruistically. As a child, her compassion for others was made evident as she would give away her lunch money to those without, befriend those with social and/or physical challenges, and help anyone in need just because she could.

Throughout her childhood and teen years, she became involved in theater, choir, dance, and ministry; performing at school and church. As she grew older and began to pursue a higher education, she used her experiences and personal qualities to transition into roles of leadership.

She began serving as a youth leader at her church, where she would write plays, songs, and coordinate programs. She became the Director of Youth Programs for Agape Centric Inc., where she assists with planning and coordinating community service events, fundraising, grant writing, mentoring, public speaking, and supporting the efforts of a local group home for boys and girls.

Shortly after graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Service Leadership from The University of Houston at Clear Lake, she was hired as the Campus Coordinator and was responsible for developing a program to service at-risk students and aid in dropout prevention. During this time, she discovered her purpose for helping others tap into resilience and inner strength.

She has learned, the life one chooses to live is dependent on the way in which one handles circumstances. So with her life, she chooses to share the wisdom she has gained, and give to others in need, with hopes that someday they will pay it forward.
