When a viewer asked Rach who the most influential and inspiring person in her life is, Rach didn’t skip a beat -- and she has two!
”My mother and my grandfather,” Rach says almost immediately.
Her grandfather, who lived with her and her mom and took care of young Rach was her best friend, she says sweetly.
And get this -- Rach says she had no friends at school because he made her sardine sandwiches every day.
"I was like a little 77-year-old Sicilian dude!”
Her mom was also a huge influence, teaching her a good work ethic which she calls her "greatest strength.”
