In 2016, sports broadcaster, Rachel Baribeau, penned a piece for GridironNow.com entitled, “College Football is Breaking My Heart.” The game she loved was becoming unrecognizable. Negative news stories dominated the game and no campus seemed immune. Most broadcasters would have left it at that. Not Rachel.

Rachel developed I’m Changing the Narrative with student athletes in mind and a belief that one crooked course made straight is everything. One misstep not taken means one less victim in the world. And one less life thrown away because of a split second bad decision. She challenges each person to respect, protect and cherish others. to serve as a role model, and to value themselves with self-love. She encourages each person to leave a legacy by using their platform to make a difference in this world.
