Leah Larson, age seventeen, of Sharon, MA is the founder, editor, and publisher of YALDAH magazine, 'a magazine for Jewish girls, by Jewish girls.' Leah founded YALDAH when she was thirteen. She had always loved reading, creative writing, art and photography, and was an avid magazine reader. She thought to herself, "Wouldn't it be great to have a magazine geared for Jewish girls?" In November 2003, she started fooling around on the computer trying to create a magazine cover. She used the sample name "Yaldah" which is Hebrew for girl. This got her creative juices flowing. Leah mapped out the first issue and got to work!
Four years later, YALDAH is a glossy, full color magazine with readers around the globe. YALDAH is written, edited, and published by Jewish girls and is dedicated to supplying Jewish girls with good quality reading. YALDAH magazine celebrates Jewish girls and women, Jewish life and values, and creativity. YALDAH aims to connect Jewish girls and inspire them to embrace their Judiasm with pride and become Jewish leaders of the future. YALDAH shows girls that using their talents and determination they can make their dreams come true!
Leah speaks for children, schools, and synagogues about her journey publishing YALDAH, overcoming challenges, and going for your dreams. She is constantly looking towards the future with more ideas of how she wants to expand YALDAH and better the world.
Leah has been written about in numerous magazines, newspapers, and websites around the world, and has won awards for writing, art, photography, and business. Leah is in eleventh grade at Bais Chomesh High School in Toronto.

Then, I had a brainstorm, “Wouldn’t it be cool to publish a magazine for Jewish girls?” My friend was used to my constant flow of ambitious but usually impractical ideas, so she simply responded, “Yeah, but we could never do it.” And… Read more.
