Due to her exceptional ability and tenacity Leah plays soccer for her club at Under 15 level although she is only 12. In school she has demonstrated talent in every activity in the PE curriculum and works hard to perform to the best of her ability - she strives to do the best she can and isn't content to rely on her natural ability. She also scored most highly out of the whole year group in the most recent "Beep Test". This attitude is evident in other school work and she has collected a significant number of "Merits" in other subjects. Leah is very popular with her peers - they recognise her exceptional ability in sport and admire and respect her for it. As Leah is such a positive role model for young people and works hard in all aspects of her life I truly believe that she has earned her "chance to shine".
