I’m a high school freshman honor student. I’m on the high school cheer team, but I’ve been cheering since kindergarten. I got into modeling by getting into pageants first. I enjoy photography and fashion, so modeling is very enjoyable. I just completed my first couple commercials, so I’m starting to pursue acting as well. When I’m not acting, modeling, cheering, or school work I enjoy hanging out with my friends.
Our readers would love to get to know you more Abigail. Tell us about yourself, what is unique about you, your brand or the services you offer?
I’m unique because I was bullied very badly in middle school. The bullying lasted for two years. The school finally had to step in to resolve the situation. Today I’m friends with my bullies, and we had sleep overs and went on vacation together. I want young girls to know that bullying is wrong and standing by and saying nothing and not standing up for someone who is being bullied is wrong too. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and their current situation may seem horrible, but it’s only a temporary situation.
Abigail, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Model?
I started into modeling by participating in a few pageants. I would like to pursue acting and combine acting and modeling.
