Lea has a dream. She wants to be a model and actress. Lea lives in Traverse City and is supported by her parents Carrie and Tony. Carrie shared Lea’s dream at a Parent Network meeting, talking about how Lea had gone to a local modeling event that did not result in a job for her.
A few months after the meeting, Parent Network Education Specialist Nicole Miller received a request from the Michigan ABLE program looking for a young adult willing to share their story and serve as a model.
Nicole thought of Lea and partnered Lea and her parents with the Michigan ABLE program. Lea and her parents are thrilled that she was able to reach her modeling dream and share her story.
