Leiah was born and raised in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. Leiah grew up not knowing who her father was because before she was born, he left her mom after she told him that she was pregnant. When Leiah was about 2 years old Leiah’s mother got really sick and ended up dying a few months after Leiah’s 2nd birthday. She ended up going to live with some close family friends who raised her as their own daughter. She grew up to be a tall, tan young lady with dark brown hair. When Leiah turned 17, she graduated high school and her “Parents” wanted her to go to college to further her education.

After she graduated College, she got a good job and started to save up money to take a trip by herself for a little while. Leiah had just turned 21 years old after she graduated college, and she had been talking to an internet guy for quite a little while (about a year or so). While they were talking, she decided it would be a great idea to go and meet him in New York. Meanwhile she didn’t know his name or what he looked like, all she knew was he was a nice guy. They were planning all of this out and they decided to meet at the Brooklyn Bridge.

Once they decided all of this, Leiah, told her Parents that she was planning on going on a trip to the Brooklyn Bridges to meet a friend that she had made in College. When she told her parents, they weren’t very happy about it.

Leiah’s parents wanted to meet the person before they would let her go, but she told them that her friend had already gone to New York. She didn’t want to tell them that she didn’t know who she was meeting, because then they wouldn’t let her go. Once Leiah convinced them to let her go, she started packing up her clothes and a few other things that she needed. Leiah went and got a ticket to fly to California because she wanted to drive to New York so she could see all the sites along the way. She left Kailua-Kona airport about 3:00 p.m. and got to California about 4:30 p.m. the next day.

Once she got to California she rented a car so she could drive to New York! She was so tired from the flight that she got a hotel room for the night. Leiah started her drive at 6 a.m. She drove for about a day and a half before she went to sleep again, but this time she slept in her car. Once she woke up, shefound a restaurant so she could get something to eat because she hadn’t eaten for almost a day. Leiah made it to Nashville Tennessee before she stopped go get something to eat.

Once she saw all the sights in Nashville, she didn’t want to leave. Leiah wanted to finish her trip in the next few days, so the only time that she stopped was to get something to eat and to use the bathroom. She was making pretty good time until she ran into a huge accident just before she got to New York. She finally made it to the Brooklyn Bridge, and then she finally got to see her mystery person. Leiah started to describe what he looks like, until he stopped her. “Let’s make this a mystery,’ he said.
