RALPH STEWART GRAHAM is originally from Houston, TX.  He joined the military at 21...not the Navy, nor the Army...he joined the US Coast Guard.  After basic training at Cape May, NJ, his first duty station was Key West, as an engineer with the Search and Rescue Team.

After seven years he decided that it was time for a career change, and in 2006 auditioned to be an 801 Girl.  For Sushi he performed two numbers, and that is how RAQUEL was born.

According to her, "I wasn't pretty like the other girls.  I taught myself how to paint a face and learned how to perfect it!  And now people and friends call me a fish who looks like a girl when all dressed up!"
