A Day in the Life of Abigail Ratchford
Abigail Ratchford is a feisty, fun-loving, peanut butter-loving, pie-loving kid who loves being outdoors and reading. She reads so much that she’s able to remember most of the books she’s read. She loves being creative, especially when it comes to reading, writing, and drawing. She’s a huge fan of Harry Potter, and is currently reading the series for the first time. If she’s not reading, she’s probably playing with her dog or doing some art.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
When I was in the second grade, my teacher told the class that advice was like a seed: it is only planted once and can only be passed on once. She told us that the moment we give someone advice, we stop passing it on, and it becomes our own. That’s when I realized that, while advice is meant to be shared, it should also be treasured.
What’s an article of clothing that you can’t live without?
I’m totally obsessed with my glasses. I lost my last pair, and I have to have a new pair every time they break. I’ve been wearing the same pair of glasses since I was three years old. They’re broken now, so I’m excited to get a new pair.
If you were to start over, what would you change?
I would start at a younger age. This would mean I would have been able to read books for longer and be more independent. When I’m older, I don’t think I would change much, but when I’m younger I would like to be more responsible.
What are you most proud of?
I’m proud that I’ve been able to overcome the odds. I’ve grown up in a low-income family with a single mother. I’ve received little support from the government, but I’ve received a lot of support from my family and my friends. We’ve been able to help each other out, even when we don’t agree with each other.
How much do you enjoy reading?
I love reading so much that, when I was a child, my mom used to tell me that the more I read, the younger I would look. Now, I just keep reading more and more. When I don’t have time to read, I will often listen to audiobooks instead. I’ve always loved reading so much that I’ve also started to write stories. I’ve never been very good at it, but I just love it so much that I keep trying. I’ve always loved reading so much that I’ve also started to write stories.

How do you recharge?
Reading is a great way to recharge. I love being able to escape into another world and see things from a different perspective. Reading is also a great way to relax after a tough day. I also love crafting, drawing, and hanging out with my friends.
Do you think it’s important to set goals for self-improvement?
Yes. Setting goals helps you stay on track. It also helps you figure out what you like to do, so you can find a job, school, or other activities that you’re interested in. It’s also important to set long-term goals, so that you can also set a timeline for when you want to accomplish them.
Reading is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It can provide you with immense benefits, including a better understanding of the world around you, a stronger imagination, and the ability to speak another language.
