Abbie Shares Her Future Plans...
I want to be a pediatrician and will be studying pre-med at SEU in Florida. If I could be remembered for anything, I would want to be remembered as a contagious love for people. My life verse is Hebrews 10:23. I chose this verse because I want to always hold on to my hope in Jesus because he’s the only one who’s always faithful and will never leave me.
