Leeah gained a desire to go above and beyond from years of competing with her older brother, Konnor. Her love of sports and a desire to prove doubters wrong led Leeah to become the first female sports editor of her school’s newspaper. She has not only excelled in the classroom but also on the volleyball court as a 4-year varsity athlete, voted MVP by her teammates. Since she was 12, Leeah has taken care of children, pets, and plants; you name it. During her senior year, she decided to become a server at 1900 Mexican Grill to save money, improve her Spanish skills, and increase global awareness by surrounding herself with people from all over the world. Due to her immeasurable love for animals and travel, Leeah plans to study Animal Science and Spanish to make her dream of developing spay and neuter clinics in developing countries a reality.
