She is inspired by Peggy Hare (her boyfriend’s Grandma) because she is a very beautiful human inside and out and is so strong in her faith. Leah wants to live the way Peggy lives her life. Leah’s most treasured keepsakes are her Bible and Journal. All her prayers, verses and ways to live a life closer to Jesus are in these books.
Leah’s favourite thing to do in the Royal City, besides the Hyack Festival, is walking around the Quay with her best friends, while eating ice cream. Leah’s proudest moment in her life, so far, was going on a mission’s trip to Ecuador with her Youth Group. If Leah could trade places with anyone it would be Judah Smith because he has an amazing personality and a super beautiful family. He has written many books and is Justin Beiber’s friend. Leah believes she would make a good Hyack Ambassador because she is a very kind person and is good with making people feel wanted.
