Meanwhile, she's also trying to survive the heavy demands of UF's Levin College of Law.
A custody battle with her husband, from whom she is separated, is an added stress on top of those she already deals with as a law student.
"The custody exchange is the most anxious activity I do all week," she said.
After switching religions, Abramowich is not on speaking terms with her family, so a normal network of support is missing from her life.
When she told family members she wanted to be a lawyer, "they thought I was crazy," she said.
Abramowich sees her struggle as a challenge to conquer.
"If it wasn't hard, everyone would be doing it," she said. "If it wasn't hard, it wouldn't be worth doing."
