About Me

My name is Abi Tolbert and I'm from Beaver, Pennsylvania. Growing up, I've lived in Clinton, New Jersey and consistently traveled to New York with my father. I also spent my summers at the family farm on my mother's side. Currently, I am a Junior at Beaver Area High School and heavily involved in Army JROTC; in which, I enjoy participating in physical activity on our Raider A-Team; and horseback riding. I have rode horses, both English & Western style, for over six years now.

I would like to say that I am responsible, energetic, courageous, ambitious and a leader. One of my main goals in life is to start my own company that makes products for our country's soldiers that will not harm the environment.
