Rachel has now been chosen as the winner of the Prince's Trust Rising Star Award. Here, she describes what it's like to become a mum age 14.
I found out I was having Kyle when I was three months pregnant .
His dad was my boyfriend at school and we were both really shocked.
We were always sensible and used protection - there was just one time when we didn't.
I constantly changed my mind about what I should do - and there were a lot of comments from friends and family.
It was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made.
But I always knew that if I got rid of my baby I would never forgive myself.
Initially a lot of people didn't believe I was pregnant, even some of my friends. They thought I was making it up for attention - some people even said they were going to batter me because of what had happened.
And some of my teachers didn't approve. I could see the odd glance and the stares. I knew they were disappointed in me.
I went into labour during the school holidays. It was a Wednesday morning and I was getting ready to go back to school and I remember I just didn't feel right.
My waters had broken and they had been leaking over a couple of days.
I finally realised I had gone into labour and was freaking out at my mum. She was telling me to stay calm.
I was so scared. I have never been through anything that scary.
We called Kyle's father and he came to the hospital.
I had to be rushed in for an emergency caesarean and the next thing I knew I wasn't pregnant any more.
It was so overwhelming but because I was two months early Kyle spent a few months in hospital and today I don't regret.
