Abigayle Hughes

Student in San Antonio, Texas

View my portfolio

I'm Abigayle, and I was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas into an extraordinarily large and loving German family. I have been a ballet student since the age of three, which led me to become a member of my high school's state champion varsity dance team for the past two years. I have taken piano lessons and competitively played for over ten years, spending countless afternoons running my hands over the keys and learning to play complex classical pieces. I am extremely passionate about the fine arts, utilizing both dance and music as methods to express myself and grow as a leader, team member, and student.

My family means the world to me. I have a special relationship with my younger brother, who was diagnosed with autism when I was only two years old. I love working with special needs children, and this passion drove me to found my own non-profit organization for autistic children when I was merely nine years old. I hope to pursue a career that allows me to perform autism research and truly make a difference in the lives of those affected.

I adore reading and writing (both creatively and for my school newspaper), spending time with my loved ones, challenging myself in various ways, learning new things, drinking lots of coffee, indulging in the fine arts I am most passionate about, and playing my part to make a difference in my community.
