Wellbeing With Abigail

Abigail St. John is 17 years old.

Health and fitness are her passion in life. She runs @wellbeingwithabigail - an instagram account  all to do with food, health and fitness.

Abigail has been a huge inspiration to me for so long. Even though she is only a year older than me, I look up to her. Not only does her food always look amazing, she is also such a real and genuine person.
