Rachel Handsor Schmidt

My name is Rachel Handsor Schmidt . I have an advanced diploma in Graphic Design from St. Clair College and a certificate for Interactive Multimedia from Sheridan College. I currently work at Generator Design as a web developer and designer. I grew up with a passion for art and design but with the world becoming more digital I wanted to grow more into technology. I'm thankful for The Hour-A-Day Study Club for helping me reach those goals. I'd love to see more POC especially our young girls in technology! It was an honour to be able to work on The Hour-A-Day Study Club website and bring them online.

I’m so grateful to the ladies of the club for all their hard work fundraising and to all the donors this year who continue to support and uplift descendants of the Underground Railroad. Serena was awarded the Patricia Eleanore Alexander Memorial Scholarship

They helped paved the way for me and my family and I want to enhance their legacy for years to come through my life’s story!
