leah yodzis
Leah Yodzis, Projects Coordinator (SpeakOUT) 

Pronouns: She/her

I am a sophomore at Ohio University. Whether it be working out or playing a sport, I like to stay active. I make people laugh for days with my tremendous amount of jokes I have stored in my head. Although I’m not an official comedian, I aspire to be one someday. Candy is my one love—I don’t discriminate. Chocolate, fruity or nutty, I love them all. That goes for food in general. I just love to eat.
