Leah, of Samoan and Palagi descent, has an awesome love for life and people. She is an ambassador for Cure Kids and has been involved in ads, music clips and photoshoots. Leah is also a member of Touch Compass Dance Company and is comfortable performing on stage.
Leah has spina bifida, a heart condition and developmental/cognitive delays. Although her disability affects her speech and she has difficulty being able to put sentences together, two or three words are okay.
Leah loves trying anything and won’t take no for an answer — if there is a way she will do anything!
