AWE (A Woman’s Experience)

Abbie, from Mesa, Arizona, is a sophomore applying for the Illustration major at BYU and is married to her best friend of five years. As a child, Abbie grew up idolizing Steve Irwin the Crocodile Hunter and Bob Ross, and often could be found drawing from her favorite Christmas gift - an animal encyclopedia (which is now only held together by duct tape). She loves kayaking, singing, science fiction, the funny way snails move, the smell of rain in Arizona, cooking new foods, and trying new things: one of Abbie's favorite unique experiences was an "agricultural processing" class where she learned to slaughter and process beef from local ranches. She hopes to someday illustrate children's books and work on the visual production of animated films.
