Liepa is currently a senior at Walter Payton College Prep. Her love for the arts has been lifelong, starting with piano and singing from an early age. They also enjoy dance, theater, and writing; she has had her poetry published and recently had her debut in acting. Liepa believes that the arts are for anyone and everyone, and that without them, humanity would be lost. Therefore, arts advocacy and expansion, especially within youth, is incredibly important to them and she’s very excited to be joining the Teen Council this year to put that passion into action.
