Abeo Robinson was born in Las Vegas, Nevada on April 1, 2004 (yes, that’s April Fool’s Day: no one believed it!). Her childhood was characterized by what seemed like an endless cycle of medical trauma and poverty as a result of her chronic disability, which would go on to pull her away from academia several times in K-12. The illness culminated in a relapse so intense in junior year of high school that she was forced to drop out. Yet, year later she entered a dual enrollment program, obtained a 4.0 GPA in her college classes, and managed to not only be on track to graduate high school, but also finish with a year of college under her belt as well! Today, she works towards her dream of being a psychologist, doing for others like her what handfuls of generous people had for her throughout the years.
