Abigail was born, raised and lives in Birmingham, England to Jamaican parents. She is immensely proud of her Jamaican heritage. She remembers visiting Jamaica and performing at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts (EMCVPA).
Abigail is a powerful advocate for increasing diversity in the creative arts and opera in particular. With this in mind, she shares that she received a scholarship to attend her local college to study music. Fondly, Abigail recalls a black tutor on the interview panel. By the same token, her belief in her chance equality soared. She believes that representation matters and that young people need to see people who look and sound like them. Seeing these people excelling in their endeavour gives them hope and fuel for success. Role models make all the difference between someone pursuing their dreams or not believing it is even possible.
