Meet Raquel

Beautiful people making beautiful work. Raindrop is full of talented and creative characters. Just Raindrop Things is a blog series where we feature our Raindroppers.

What’s your favorite brand and why?

Aerie is my favorite brand because of their body positivity efforts. Their models are all different ages, sizes, ethnicities, and they often include people with physical disabilities to show that beauty is way more than what the media typically portrays it to be. Not to mention, their clothes are extremely comfortable and affordable.

If you could take an all expenses paid trip anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?

I would go to Italy in a heartbeat. I’m half Italian, so I’d love to experience the culture and immerse myself in a different way of life. The architecture is so beautiful and a trip filled with pizza and pasta sounds like an absolute dream.

How did you get started at Raindrop and what’s your favorite part of the job?

After going to college in San Diego, I wanted to live here permanently, so I came across Raindrop when looking for marketing companies in San Diego. I also met a few of the Raindroppers at a networking event the day after I applied! My favorite part about my job is how I’m surrounded with so many like-minded people. Everyone is great at their work, which leads to great results, but everyone also knows how to have a good time and celebrate.

If you had to pick one meal to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

This is so hard considering I looooveee food, but I am going to have to go with sushi. There are so many different styles and flavors when it comes to sushi, so I don’t think I would get tired of it for quite some time.

If you could give one piece of advice to your teenage self, what would it be?

Life is 100% about balance. Work hard, but learn when to take a break. Say yes to new opportunities, but know when to set boundaries. Be independent, but know when to ask for help. Care for others, but don’t forget to care for yourself. Plan for the future, but don’t forget to live in the present. And the list goes on and on. Basically, don’t be consumed with the desire to be perfect, but focus more on creating a life that keeps you balanced.
