Leah currently is a student at Westside Middle School (WMS) where she is an Honors math student and a participant in the Excellence in Youth Program, which offers a variety of seminars and unique learning opportunities.
Leah plays competitive basketball for the Westside Jr. Warriors Girls Basketball club and also plays for the WMS Junior Varsity girls basketball team. She enjoys traveling and spending time with family, to include her two dogs Wrigley and Bella, hanging out with friends, and cheering on the Chicago Cubs and Bears.
For her Mitzvah project, Leah volunteers at the Stephen Center, participating in meal (breakfast) preparation and service. Additionally, Leah commissioned special Pura Vida bracelets to sell and raise money to donate for meal preparation supplies/ingredients.
She has a sister, Hannah.
