The Central Trend

Abby Wright
Abby Wright is a senior entering her fourth and final year on staff for The Central Trend, and second year as Editor in Chief. For Abby, life's most colorful moments are comprised of sunset drives, going to work with one of her best friends and co-editor, seeing her favorite bands and artists live, and every single day in the chaotically calm TCT room. Despite the changes that this year is bringing, Abby is thankful to be back in the room for her final year of high school, and is beyond excited to see where life takes her after this year.

Favorite part about being on staff: giving her a passion that she can pursue as a career, the four years of growth as a person and a writer, and the family that she has met through the class.

Favorite moment of her life thus far: being like twenty feet away from Hozier and scream-sobbing during his acoustic rendition of her favorite song, "From Eden"

Things she can kind of do, but isn't perfect at: skateboarding, painting, making scrambled eggs, and parallel parking.

Her strange addictions: mustard on pickles, açaí-blueberry-pomegranate vitamin water, and the pretzel bites from Culver's (will always be upset that they are seasonal).
