Abbie Findley is a junior at Western Carolina University.
On beginning her journey at the University, she stated “I’m from Gainesville, Georgia, a few hours outside of Atlanta. I went from age three to age 18 in Gainesville. I wound up at Western because after senior year applying for colleges all over the U.S., I got denied everywhere for whatever reason. Western sent me a Dean’s choice application. I applied and got in.”
