Abigail

My name is Abigail! I am a current college student studying journalism. One day, I hope to go into political journalism and become a White House Correspondent.

I was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth. After being born at 25 weeks, I suffered a grade 4 brain bleed during my 94-day NICU stay. I wish more people knew that the severity of their cerebral palsy doesn’t invalidate their CP. Whether you’re a 1 or a 5 on the GMFCS, you are still someone with cerebral palsy. I hope to educate people about the chronically ill/disabled community and learn more about advocating not only for myself, but for others. My interests and hobbies include reading, writing, baking, playing piano, traveling, and going out with friends. I love trying new things!
