The GFB Team wishes to extend congratulations and a warm welcome to the Speaking Team to Leah. The process of becoming a GFB speaker is an intense one that includes graduation from our Summer Academy, FAST Defense training and graduation, quite a bit of reading and studying, a series of conference calls and consults, two complimentary practice gigs that are taped and reviewed by the rest of the team, and unanimous approval from the current team. We really want to be sure that the women who are chosen to represent us and the GFB message are the best of the best and we couldn’t have made a better choice with Leah.
Leah is based in NYC. She majored in Cultural Studies at McGill University and wrote her Honor’s Thesis in Film and Women’s Studies. When she isn’t representing GFB, you can see her on the stage as a comedian. Huffington Post named her one of their Favorite Female Comedians and College Candy listed in her as one of the Top Ten Female Comics. She is also a regular on VH1′s 100 Greatest Series and has toured for the troops in Iraq and throughout the Middle East. She already has some events booked for Spring 2014, so coming soon to a campus near you . . . . meet Leah!
