About our guest:  Leah Darrow is an international Catholic speaker that dares her audience to live a life according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Before her debut on the reality TV show, America’s Next Top Model, and the subsequent years as a professional model in New York City, Leah earned a B.A. in psychology from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. As a full-time apologist and speaker for Catholic Answers from 2010-2013, Leah brought her experience of both reality TV and the fashion world to the masses. She is currently working towards her M.A. Theology at the Augustine Institute in Denver, Colorado.

Leah has appeared on numerous radio and TV programs regarding topics of faith and culture. She also addressed a United Nations panel discussion on behalf of international youth in July of 2011. Most recently overseas, Leah rallied an audience of 15,000 youth at the World Trade Center in Manila during her Real Love Revolution tour in the Philippines, and then here at home gave the keynote address for 6,200 college students at the national FOCUS conference, SEEK2013 held in Walt Disney World.

Leah speaks to people of all ages on topics of mercy, conversion, human dignity, modesty, and chastity. Leah is particularly inspired to share these ideas in light of Pope John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, and do her small part in the call for a New Evangelization.
