Without any real plans after high school she plans on leaving Winnemucca to further her art abilities in Portland, Oregon. Rachel doesn't know what's in store for her for the years to come and doesn't know what Portland has to offer either. But she believes that it will "be an adventure she is willing trying out".
evada is just the same every day for herald there is nothing to do in Winnemucca. She is just more of a city girl. Besides there is more opportunity in a city than in a small town like Winnemucca. In Portland it is beautiful and she believes that with a better surrounding she will be more creative and create better pieces which will allow her to keep getting more intelligent and experienced in the performing arts.
"I just want to experience something new. Nevada just isn't for me," said Metzker. "I really feel that if my surroundings are creative then that's the way I'm going to think, and Portland is where I think I'll find what I'm looking for."
