Abby Ershadi, one of the recent winners of our Think the Vote debate contest, is in her junior year at J.H. Rose High School in Greenville North Carolina. Abby is a busy and multitalented young woman with diverse interests. Her favorite subject is English, and she participates in mock trial, Science Olympiad, FBLA, and several other clubs at her school. She also dances at a local studio, NCADA.
“I love hanging out with my friends, going to the beach, and reading,” says Abby, “And I love dystopian books and movies, so I love The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner series.” Her favorite musical artists include Chase Atlantic, Green Day, Ghost Club, and Camino.
Abby is very proud to have been accepted into the North Carolina Governor’s School West, “a multi-week summer residential program for gifted and talented high school students, integrating academic disciplines, the arts, and unique courses.”
As a future voter, the three most important issues to Abby are human rights, the environment, and affordable health care. Abby’s plans for the future include obtaining a degree in either business or journalism and traveling.
