Filled with a profound love for photography, Leila is someone who experiences a deep sense of peace and solitude while being outdoors, capturing landscapes, sunsets and sunrises. She enjoys waking up with the sun (and sometimes earlier), drinking a hot cup of coffee while letting the morning light fall upon her skin.
A little over a year after obtaining her undergraduate degree in Journalism and Media Studies and an advanced diploma in Journalism – Online, Print and Broadcast from Trent University and Loyalist College in 2019, Leila found herself in Gravenhurst, Ontario.
The path to where she is now was a windy one. After searching for a career that Leila could feel passionate about, a unique opportunity popped up in Muskoka that changed everything.
Leila moved to Gravenhurst during the pandemic to take on a marketing and communications position at the Gravenhurst Chamber of Commerce. Being in Muskoka and working at the chamber fueled her passion for connecting with others, making a positive impact in the lovely community of Gravenhurst, writing and editing, photography and social media.
Aside from that, Leila takes great pleasure in Latin dancing, supporting local businesses, eating fresh-made doughnuts and trying new cafes. She continues to explore Muskoka and its natural wonders while getting to know the people who call it home!
