WAY OUT WEST: The Independent‘s newest face may hail from the Midwest, but she’s a California girl at heart. Since graduating from the University of Arizona earlier this year, arts intern Rachel Cabakoff has been plotting her way back to the Golden State. “I was born in California and grew up in Ohio, but I was always itching to come back,” she says. Cue The Indy. Just three weeks into her stay, and Rachel has already delved deep into the world of DNA Imagery and interviewed multi-platinum singer-songwriter Jason Mraz, who plays the Santa Barbara Bowl this Labor Day weekend. As for her favorite bands, Rachel is hesitant to name names, but hints at some surprises. “I come off as a very shy person, so when I tell people I like Led Zeppelin they don’t know what to think.”
