Meet Leah!

What's your major?

Elementary Education

If you could live anywhere, where would it be and why?

I don't think I could live anywhere else but New Orleans. But if I absolutely had to leave, I would want to go somewhere with easy access to a beach. 

What is your dream job?

If I don't get to work with kids, then I don't want to work at all. My dream job is to help kids who don't have a good home life or solid support system, maybe work with juvenile delinquents and help them get their life on track. That would be pretty cool.

What's your favorite television show/series?

Friends

Favorite restaurant in Baton Rouge?

New York Bagel

What's your favorite DG event?

Semi for sure. I love getting dressed up and seeing all my sisters look so beautiful with their dates.

What was your DG aha moment when you went through recruitment?

My DG aha moment happened the second I stepped foot in the house during Ice Water round. Seeing all the familiar faces from women I looked up to in high school had my heart so happy. The conversations I had with women who I had just met seemed like I had been friends with them for years. I felt so comfortable and so at home from the very beginning of recruitment.

What's your favorite part about your position?

My favorite part is being able to help our chapter grow with wonderful new women at the end of recruitment, and being able to meet each one of them during recruitment week.

Best piece of advice for a PM going through recruitment?

Be yourself, be open to new experiences, and listen to your heart. Don't follow your best friend to a house just because you can't live without her. Wherever you end up is where you belong, and the sisters you meet will be your friends forever. Also, don't be scared or intimidated, we don't bite :)

If you could pick one word to describe your Delta Gamma sisters, what would it be?

Genuine. Every woman in this sorority has exceeded all expectations I had about being in a sorority. You just can't find this type of genuine friendship anywhere else.

Favorite social media outlet?

Snapchat

What's your favorite class so far at LSU?

All my education classes get me so pumped to become a teacher one day. I really can't pick a favorite!

What's one thing you want to do before you graduate?

I want it to snow again and I want to go sledding down the Indian Mounds.
