Leslie created StickyRice in efforts to bring awareness and resources to boots-on-the-ground organizations that are in the front lines of fighting human trafficking in 2014 using her design skills in fashion, art, writing and photography.  It now remains as an umbrella for various projects to further this mission.  


Art with Intentionality 

Leslie authored and illustrated 'Princesses With Purpose' a children's book, revealing the characteristics of a Princess that knows who she is.  Leslie feels too many Princess books focus on beauty and beauty is the least interesting thing about a human.  Her hopes is that it allows families to connect and converse to lay healthy and powerful foundations that will empower girls beyond their formative years.
