Leah ran for DYD because she believes that this is the most important time in our lives as millenials to get involved. Our generation is more open minded and open hearted than any generation before us and if we want to see a change, we need to step up. She is so excited to be working with the 2018 DYD Board to offer every opportunity for people to take ownership of their community.

Leah is also a licensed hand poked tattoo artist and loves to be outside.
