A few months ago Rachel opened up to Mpoomy Ledwaba about multiple suicide attempts, depression, and finding Jesus.

She said she tried to commit suicide when she was 15.
“I just remember being stuck in a hole, I tried to commit suicide when I was 15. It’s been 2 to 3 years cutting myself and crying for help and just not finding it, people not understanding …… I remember I received an email from someone I met in America... he was quite harsh with me, he was like ‘how dare you to think that your life is something for you to decide when it’s over, how dare you not think about people who love you?’…I was in a whole, I don’t know but for a better explanation, it was like a slap in the face. It was like ‘wake up, realize where you are and what can you do, what can you control, what can you do in a whole to get out ”

She said she eventually realized that she needed to change and live a better life.
“I realized after school that the life that I am living is not getting me to the healthy marriage, healthy life, the good career, it’s not getting me there, it’s getting me somewhere else and I was like I need to go back to my base. Yes, I was raised in Christian more of the religious side but I went into this discovery of who Jesus is and what does Jesus do for us until this day sometimes I pray and I am like Lord I just wanna understand more of the sacrifice that happened more of that decision to sacrifice your son for us.”
