Leigh Ernst Freistedt Visits Truth for Inspiring Talk

Leigh Ernst Friestedt, a former lacrosse player at Brown, law school graduate, investment banker, and current founder and owner of Equity IX LLC, came to speak with the HLL girls program at P.S. 149 the Sojourner Truth School on Thursday, February 26th.  Currently working on a sports documentary titled, Early Recruit - The "Committed" Student-Athlete, Leigh provided a unique perspective on the opportunities available to student-athletes.  Touching on subjects like the shared values of sports and academics, the importance of creating goals, and strategies for success both on the field and in the classroom, she provided an opportunity for the girls to reflect on their own goals and progress in HLL's program. 

We thank Leigh for her inspiring words and look forward to working with her again!
