Born and raised in Colombia, South America, Leila moved to the United States when she was 14 years old, but Leila says, "I still feel like a foreigner." She's a mother, a wedding fashion designer, and more recently asked her partner to be her wife. She love hiking, caring for her plants, cooking, listening to her daughter play piano, and watching her son’s face light up when he gets a new idea.


One of her favorite things is to encourage people to be authentically themselves. It makes her world turn!
