Abby is a senior in Raleigh, North Carolina. This is her first year on the National Youth Leadership Council. Abby’s favorite project has been to organize and host events in conjunction with the U.S. Climate Strike. Additionally, she is the Social Chair for the Junior Classical League, Projects Director for Key Club, and secretary for UNICEF. She fights for social justice as the Social Media Director for the Wake County Truth and Reconciliation Committee.  When she isn’t writing, reading, or blasting rock music through her car speakers, you can find her at her local coffee shop curled up with a peppermint mocha.
