The film's website gives more insight into the life of this inspiring young lady:
Scott wrote in her journal, “I’ve always been drawn to hands. I think it’s because it’s the way we touch people. If one person could go out of their way to show compassion, it could start a chain reaction.”
Growing up, Rachel knew the love of God, but she wasn’t always ready to receive it. At times her faith was on fire … and at other times it was at odds with her everyday life.
As she wrote in her journal: “I don’t understand why having a walk with God is so hard for me. I’m so weak. At school, with friends, at work.”
Having reached a breaking point when her relationship with a non-believing boyfriend ended, Rachel found inspiration from her “big brother” — a former homeless teen she helped lead to Christ.
After praying, “Father, use my life to touch the world and let your light shine through me,” her renewed commitment to Jesus played out compassionately and powerfully at her high school … and around the world.
