Leah has been playing soccer since she was seven. Her love of the game led to an interest in the United States Womens National Team. Attending her first game in 1996, Leah was hooked as a devoted fan when the players signed autographs after the game for many of the 2,000 fans.

Leah's interest in writing led to a one-year assignment as a junior reporter for the X-Press Section of Florida's largest newspaper, the St. Petersburg Times. Five of her feature stories focused on women's soccer. Leah had the incredible opportunity to interview and/or collect comments from most of the players on the U.S. National Team in 1999, either one-on-one, or in media conferences she attended with the international press.

Leah's long list of accomplishments is impressive:
* Honorable Mention, Features, National High School Journalism Competition by NFPW (September, 2004)
* First Place, Features, Eastern At-Large States by the National Federation of Press Women (July 2004)
* "Everday Hero"profile by Bay News9 (July, 2004)
* Teen of the Month at: (July, 2004)
* Cover story for Positive Teens Magazine (July-August, 2004)
* Finalist, National Journalism Award, Women's Sports Foundation (2000)
* Hewlett-Packard National Soccer Photo Contest Winner (1999)
* Junior Reporter, St. Petersburg Times X-Press Team (1998 - 1999)

Leah, today an 18-year-old, is an Honor Roll senior at St. Petersburg Catholic High School in St. Petersburg, Florida. She has attended the Poynter Institute's Summer Writing Camp. In her spare time, Leah takes pottery courses and volunteers as a teacher's aid for summer campers. She also serves as group leader in Central Christian Church Youth Ministry.
