Rachel Millns, 24, hails from the Kapiti Coast. She was born in Whanganui and moved to the Kapiti Coast when she was five years-old. She attended Kapanui School and later Paraparaumu College. During her gap year, she trained in body work and chose to earn a diploma in beauty therapy at Élite International Beauty School in Wellington. She worked as a professional beauty therapist for Absolute Bliss in Wellington for the last four years. She would like to achieve a B.Sc. degree in nutrition. After working with people and seeing the link between that and skin care, she became passionate about the discipline. In the future, after getting her nutrition qualification, she would like to have her own business. Rachel loves Pilates, the gym, baking, and getting out and about around Kapiti. She is very outdoor-oriented and enjoys hiking.
FUN FACTS: Rachel has done many off-road quad-bike excursions. Even as a little girl she has been on the back of quad bikes and now rides them whenever she gets a chance. She's a movie buff, especially comedies and dramas, but is terrified of horror movies. The Devil Wears Prada is her favorite movie and she particularly loves Meryl Streep’s performance. As a child, Rachel spent more time outdoors and at the beach than watching television.
