My name is LeeAnn Syndergaard. I’m from a small town outside of Oakland, called Castro Valley, which is known for essentially nothing. I tend to tell people that I am from “a small town outside of Oakland.” When I was about 15, a family moved into our neighborhood and we become very close with them. They had a 3 year old who couldn’t for the life of him pronounce my name, so he called me Lahn. Lets just say that it really stuck.
I studied Communication at BYU Idaho with an emphasis is in Organizational Communication and Advocacy. I’m still figuring out what the first part of that is, but I love the Advocacy part. I’m not sure whether I want to go to law school, or just go on to get a Master’s in Business, but I do know that I want to make a difference in the world through the spoken or written word. Whatever is necessary to give a voice to the voiceless.
