Abbey Hoteling is ranked number one in her class at Gananda High School, but she's not just a superb academic. Abbey's artwork is extraordinary. She turns out award-winning pieces in every medium. Her portfolio is eclectic, and includes watercolors, drawings, digital art and sculpture. "There isn't anything Abbey can't do," says Christine DeTurck, Gananda art teacher.
Some day Abbey wants to be a doctor, and she's already taken steps toward that goal. "I like to help people," she says. "It's just really interesting to hear about how different diseases affect different people, and I want to change their lives." Abbey wants to help change people's lives, and she's already done that, with her art!
