A Chat with Leena
As a child... I loved to play ball, cricket, hide and seek, climbing trees. I guess I was a bit of a tomboy!
My first job... was as a college professor.
My fondest memory is... sitting on a tree, watching the sky and the birds.
I am most proud of... my children.
My biggest challenge... is patience.
My role model... was my mother.
My community... is filled with my friends.
Libraries are... a wonderful place to read and relax. Like a treasure hunt for knowledge.
My favorite book is... Tess by Hardy, and Gone with the Wind and many more.
I volunteer... at the Library and at my Temple, and would like to volunteer at an animal shelter.
If I wasn't volunteering... I'd be painting.
