ONE MINUTE WITH ABBY
WUMCRC: “Why are you excited to be working in Forest Park Southeast?”
ABBY: “I don’t get to spend much time in the city, so I’m excited to be close to different and new activities and people.”
WUMCRC: “What do you enjoy most about living in St. Louis?”
ABBY: “You can’t ever be bored because there are a thousand things to do. I’ve always lived in a small town, so being able to experience new cultures has been exciting and eye-opening.”
WUMCRC: “If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?”
ABBY: “Shapeshifting. Not only could I become any animal, but I could change my hair slightly or eye color or height. Or be Meryl Streep.”
