Rachel’s Journey to Fame, from Deprivation to Glory
Rachel’s grandparents were cotton pickers and had six children to feed. Rachel grew up in a big and loud family with a father who was a Pentecostal minister and a mother who was a church pianist. She grew up poor and her clothes which were always bought from the thrift store never fit her. Her parents were always arguing over everything but most of all economic matters. Their unhappy marriage finally ended up in separation.
Rachel went to live with her mother in a very small and old apartment. Her childhood was interwoven with disaster and misery, but she always had big dreams in mind. She knew that someday she would become very rich that she could buy and do whatever she wanted. After high school graduation, Rachel moved to Los Angeles to go to college. In LA, she found a job at the Miramax Company, where she began thinking about having a company of her own.

Rachel Hollis as an Author
Rachel Hollis started her writing with books such as the bestselling series named Girl Series which include Party Girl, Sweet Girl and Smart Girl. She has also written a cookbook, Upscale Downhome. Although these books did not turn out to be much of a success, she never stopped writing and she never gave up. Eventually, her efforts gave rise to a best seller.
In February 2018, she wrote an inspiring book called “Girl, Wash Your Face.” The book rated among the top 10 best selling books in the United States for seven months in a row – it was at the very top for 12 weeks – and more than 880,000 copies of it sold in a few months in the US. The book also ranked as the second most popular book of 2018 on the Amazon website. It is described as “memoir, motivational tips, Bible quotations and common-sense girl talk” by The Washington Post. The book summarized into a few words quoted from its author: “You, and only you, are ultimately responsible for how happy you are.”
Each chapter of “Girl Wash Your Face” starts with a special lie she once believed about the ugliness and unworthiness of herself, her body, and her relationships. Throughout the book, she speaks with kindness and honesty asking the readers to stop thinking about such monstrous lies. She asks from other women to work on their self-confidence, awaken their own passion and determination, and always keep moving forward despite all obstacles. Rachel states that personal development is the realization that life is a process of making oneself better or worse compared to the current self.
Rachel Hollis as a Social Media Star
She populated her social media when she shared an IG photo of herself in bikini, adoring her body stretch marks.

Her tips and advice on social media are not new or innovative; she goes with very simple but practical tips such as unfollowing people or deleting applications that make the person sad.
