Leah Perry is focused on her mission. A first generation college student and applied health and exercise sciences major, Leah has her sights set on becoming a physician assistant for a non-profit organization that serves kids.
"I am passionate about helping others. I love to help others in any way I can," says Leah.
A Clear Lake, Iowa native, Leah has plenty of inspiration for achieving her goal. She watched her parents pursue their dreams of becoming pastors and saw the impact her mother has had as a director of a center for recovering drug addicts.
"My parents definitely inspired me. Both are such caring individuals. They're always pushing me to do better and to be a better person. I'd have to credit any and all of my success to them," adds Leah.
