Personal experiences with the name Leanna: | Edit

I'm Leanna and I tend to naturally shy away from social encounters but I care about people and like listening and talking to them so that counteracts my shy moments! I was really sensitive in the past but I'm getting over that. I'm a confident person who is beautiful on the inside and the outside. I tend to analyze just about everything but I believe that it makes me a problem solver and makes me smart. I'm a talented person who can pick something up (like an instrument) and can learn in within a few minutes. I'm a reaaally easy person to talk to and I can get along with pretty much anyone, as long as you don't give me a reason not to get along and/or like you. Overall, I'm a friendly, happy, and open person who believes that positivity and hard work really do pay off! Also, I think my name suits me perfectly since it's unique and creative, just like me! :)
