Born in hood-adjacent Baltimore City, Leslie is a University of Maryland College Park graduate, a veteran journalist and someone always looking for new ways to tell stories, both her own and those in her communities. She also really likes vegan cheese, because she’s a now a vegan and can’t eat real cheese anymore. But she’s mostly cool with it.
Leslie has a lot of upcoming appearances and such, some open to the public, others just cool things she wants you to know about:
