Leanne was born one day before Thanksgiving Day ! Her High School years were difficult for her and unhappy because she experienced indifference, ridicule and event resentment from classmates causing her to go through depression and anxiety. It was the understanding and passion for art and her family which became her refuge from all the pain and challenges of being different from the rest. Despite all the obstacles, she graduated on June 2014. But a big blow came to the family when her mom was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and lost her battle on 2016. Leanne still continues to attend classes at MSAC to get closer to her dream.
