Meet Abby Wihl

May 31, 2007

Nickname(s): Abby, Abs, Abaqueta, Abby Doll, Mama (long story), Abigail Van Buren - the list goes on and on.

Age: 19

College: American University in Washington, D.C.

Family: We are a large, crazy, fun, and at times slightly dysfunctional (but whose isn't?) family. My family is incredibly diverse. My stepmom is Hispanic and my stepdad is African-American. I have one totally biological older brother (almost 21), an older family friend whom I can consider a brother (20), a younger stepbrother (14), and a half-sister (6).

Places I've lived: I have lived all over Albuquerque, a little while in Los Lunas, and have spent the last year in Washington, D.C.

My car is: awesome and fast, but you would never know it.

I wish my car was: a hybrid. I hate paying for gas.

What Mom always told me: Always wear your seat belt!

In my spare time I like to: travel, go on spontaneous adventures, people-watch, read, watch "Grey's Anatomy" and sleep.

Favorite superhero: Batman, because he is super even though he does not have any supernatural powers.

If I had a million dollars: I would pay off all my student loans and then go to Africa.

A book and a movie I love: "God of Small Things," by Arundhati Roy; "The Sound of Music."

The thing I most want to do while in New Mexico: Go to White Sands. Even though I am a native, I don't think I have ever been.

The thing out-of-towners have to do while here: Go to the Frontier and then walk around Hidden Park.

Comfort food: Dark chocolate.

Red or green: Green on the side.
