A CONVERSATION WITH RACHEL ARAZASHVILI
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Although I enjoy traveling the world and experiencing different cultures, there’s no place I’d rather be then my hometown, Daytona Beach. This may change in years to come, but for now, I love living on Perfect Drive.
If you could meet anyone in the world, who would they be?
Gandhi, one of the wisest men to ever live.
Best advice you’ve ever been given:
Because I love to glean from the wisdom of others, it’s hard to choose just one. So, I’ll share a saying my mother would tell my siblings and I growing up. “Good, better, best; never let it rest until the good gets better and the better becomes your best.” I guess this is why I continue to focus on improving all I do. Thanks mom!
Who is your role model and why?:
Jesus of course! His perfect love and message transforms lives to this very day.
Something interesting about you:
The best compliment I have ever received is that my inside beauty has finally caught up with my external beauty. Thank you Charlana Kelly! Internal beauty outweighs external every time.
Three words that describe you best:
Passionate, integrity, Innovator.
The Holy Bible every day and “The power of a Praying Parent,” by Craig Hill.
Favorite TV Show:
“The Good Doctor”, “Reign”, “The Crown”, “Victoria”, “Call the Midwife”; It’s hard to have just one fave.
I enjoy watching figure skating and gymnastics.
