Leslie may have a bubbly personality, but she came into this competition to show everyone that she can accomplish whatever she puts her mind to – and she wants to win. In fact, Leslie manifested her career in hair and makeup by clipping a magazine photo and promising herself that she’d appear in the same publication in the future (and yes, she made it happen). She works as a hair and makeup artist in Gilbert, AZ and aims to bring out her client’s personality and confidence through her work. As a single mom, Leslie’s daughter is her biggest motivation and inspiration. Her daughter lives with a rare bone disease called fibrous dysplasia, and Leslie wants to show her that she can live out her dreams, regardless of any obstacles that come her way. Leslie works hard and is passionate about hair and makeup, and wants to prove she has what it takes to become the next American Beauty Star.
