Akronite of the Week

Meet Abbey Ruggles

Your Instagram host for the week of February 14, 2021

Meet Abbey:

Hi there! My name is Abbey and I have lived in Akron my entire life. I grew up in Firestone Park, spent a little bit of time in Bath/Richfield, and now I have been back in Akron living on my own for about 5 years.

I’m sure it’s a common answer, but the reason I love Akron so much is because of the access to all the parks. I think that it’s super cool to brag about having a National Park so close to you πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ. I also love that the community is so immersed in art and music. I play music in the DIY scene (haven’t this year thanks to miss Rona 😒) around Akron and it has brought so many kind and talented people into my life.

I graduated from The University of Akron with my Bachelor’s in Child and Family Development 3 years ago, and I am currently deciding on if I want to get my masters degree or not. Currently, I am a teaching assistant and a home health aide by day. By night, I mostly just knit, cook with my boyfriend, and pet/get attacked by our kitten named Mo. Thanks so much for taking the time to read a little bit about me ☺️
