The quote below from Abby’s application describes why she is the winner!
My life has been eighteen years of trials and struggles and there were so many things that I could’ve used as a reason to completely give up on myself, but I didn't. I continued to push forward and I became the hero of my own story, and I refuse to think of myself as anything less than that.
