One of our own, Miss Leah Williams, is a member of the select group who was chosen from many qualified applicants throughout the state of Maryland as an OFFICIAL STATE FINALIST for the Miss Maryland USA competition. As part of her platform for the pageant, Leah will be bringing awareness to the debilitating digestive diseases that affect so many across Maryland, the country, and the globe. Leah was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2015 at the age of 22. As many of us know, this disease impacts all aspects of someone’s life. Leah has been a strong warrior in tackling all of the challenges she has faced since being diagnosed. Some of Leah’s accomplishments include graduating undergrad with a 4.0 GPA, winning the Presidential Leadership Award, being selected as an HBCU All-Star, and shortly after being diagnosed she obtained her Master’s degree in just one year. Leah currently works for Northrop Grumman and looks forward to continuing to develop as a business professional.  Leah is participating in the pageant in hopes of gaining a platform that will not only bring more awareness to diseases such as Crohn’s Disease, but to also inspire all young women across the globe to reach for their dreams, regardless of the obstacles they face. If you would like more information, please contact Leah at lmwilliams11@outlook.com.
