1. What does it mean to both of you to be a leading woman?
Being a leading woman is all about taking initiative, whether that's being involved on campus or going the extra mile to make an A in your class. It's never passing up an opportunity to be your best self and help those around you. -Ella
True leadership is stepping down and serving others before yourself. -Rachel
2. What in Auburn would you consider a “hidden gem”?
Honestly we would say our church is a pretty fantastic hidden gem. They provide us with so many resources, like free food, a study space 24/7, and tons of support! -Ella
My front porch. My brother and I live together in a trailer near the woods and our front porch faces out over the beautiful trees. I love sitting on it in the afternoon with a good book. -Rachel
