Getting to Know Leah

What person, living or deceased, would you most like to meet?
My great-grandparents. They immigrated to the United States from Sicily and based upon what I’ve heard from my family, I would love nothing more than to be able to hear their stories first hand. Sitting down for dinner with them would be interesting, enlightening, and entertaining.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
Spending your days doing something you are passionate about with people that you respect and make you a better person.

If applicable, how does your involvement with the community fulfill you?
I love having the opportunity to give back to those in need. Seeing the smile on someone’s face and knowing you made their day better, even it was just for a short time, is incredibly rewarding.
