Miss Outstanding Teen-2015 Rachel Weyandt

Rachel Weyandt
Miss Minnesota's Outstanding Teen 2015

Rachel is the daughter of Michele and Jerry Weyandt. She is a home schooled sophomore and is involved in attending and volunteering at church, dance, piano, shopping and photography! A lot of her time, though, is spent helping with her adopted sister and foster sister. She plans to attend college at either UCLA or Princeton and major in either psychiatry or pre-law. 

Rachel's platform is Foster Care to Adoption, something that has played the biggest role in her life. She hopes to make an impact on not only foster children, but their foster families as well. Rachel's family has cared for 22 foster children and she has one adopted sister. Through her personal experiences Rachel hopes to eliminate the stigma attached to foster care and adoption and expand on the benefits. Rachel is in the beginning stages of starting her own non-profit organization. This organization will support three branches of her platform including support for foster families, financial support to MN Adopt, and "Bags of Hope". "Bags of Hope" is Rachel's own unique idea that would send supplies and essentials with babies in foster care.

In addition to winning the state title, Rachel also won the Talent Award for her piano performance, as well at the Tracie Joy McBride Teens In Action Award.
