Hello everyone! My name is Abigail and I have been a figure skater for seven years. When I was younger I was always fascinated by the grace that skaters such as Michelle Kwan had on the ice, and dreamed of being able to have that same experience. Then for my thirteenth birthday I was given the opportunity to join Learn to Skate. I instantly fell in love with it! Since then I have become a competitive skater as well as a show skater. In 2019 I became a national gold medalist at the National Excel Festival as well as a national silver medalist at the 2019 High School Final. Also in 2019 I was honored to perform in the gala at the senior US Figure Skating Championships aired on NBC. All thanks to my start in Learn to Skate! It's never too late to follow a dream and thanks to skating mine has become a reality.
