Leah: I just love food, especially my mom's Bulgarian cooking. Taco Bell is my favorite fast food restaurant. I also love Italian food.
Leah: I love ballads. I'm not into fast songs. I love to put my heart and all of my feelings into a song.
Leah: I am really into color and bright clothing. When I'm wearing heels, I always like to throw some different colors into my outfit, so it doesn't match. That gives my look a retro and funky feel.
Leah: My audition experience was crazy! We wound up camping out in New York City. My mom stayed with me the whole time. She's a trooper. A few of the nights, she sent me back to the hotel while she camped out overnight and saved my spot. She didn't want me sleeping outside on the streets.
