Abby Grace

Abby Grace hails from Tupelo, Mississippi. She is a member of the Class of 2016 at Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service. There, she is majoring in international security and minoring in women and gender studies. Although the majority of her time is spent studying Chinese, she holds executive positions in both the Philodemic Debating Society and H*yas for Choice. Raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, her passion for child advocacy stems from witnessing the long-lasting effects of the Cradle-to-Prison Pipeline and educational inequalities first-hand. Abigail is certain that, no matter what the future holds for her, child advocacy will remain an integral part of her future. She is delighted to be spending her summer in D.C. while interning in CDF’s President’s Office.
