Writing Portfolio

The generation that will end slavery

"Teenagers are willing to do something about the things that matter to them. They change their Instagram bios to reflect their current passions. They’ll wear a bracelet from a concert until it falls off. They’ll plaster their Hydroflask with stickers that each have a backstory." | Dressember Foundation

About Heather

Heather Leith is a writer based in Orange County, California who specializes in magazines, features writing, social media and copy editing. She latched onto the blogging trend in junior high and never looked back. She's worked as a professional blogger, copy editor, features editor, social media manager, editor-in-chief and most recently, youth minister. Oh, and she was a killer waitress.

Heather's love for people and obsession over the tiniest details keep her coming back to a blank page and a full tape recorder over and over. She loves a good profile piece and has had the pleasure of interviewing people like Mat Kearney and Rick Warren.

Heather is an Enneagram 7, an ESFP and a youngest child, a combination that means she feels most at home on a stage with a microphone in hand. Her Shakira and Avril impressions are legendary on the karaoke circuits. She's currently honing her Britney.
