Leah Larson, 17 year-old founder and editor of the popular YALDAH magazine for girls worldwide, was chosen as a semifinalist in the ‘Someday Stories’ contest by Wells Fargo Bank.
Chosen along with four others, from 10,000 applicants, Leah received $10,000 for her magazine. Yaldah – Hebrew for “girl” – is a magazine that encourages young girls to follow their dreams, empowers them to take leadership roles in their communities and celebrates their Jewish faith.
But the story doesn’t end there.
On September 17th, Wells Fargo posted video entries from each of the five finalists on their website, to be voted on by the public. The contestant receiving the most votes will win $100,000 for their venture.
