Leah is a second year PhD student at the Dept. of Sport Sciences, Malmö University. Her dissertation project is about the concept of "talent" and what it really means when we use a word that seems to have thousands of definitions. Raised in northern Germany and after two exciting sabbatical years in Amsterdam, Leah decided to move to Sweden in 2014 to study peace and conflict science at Malmö University. She obtained her bachelor's degree in 2017 and then began a master's degree in gender studies at Lund University, which she completed in 2019. She has also lived and studied in South Korea and Australia.
