Profile:

Whether the lucky meatball subs she had before her regional spelling bee or her favorite dish, meatloaf, Lela's strategy for success is a hearty meal. Lela’s favorite subject at school is science, and she enjoys participating in school science fairs. Lela is a flutist in the school marching band and was named a district band finalist for her performance skills. She enjoys playing and listening to music, especially show tunes. She also loves crocheting and has started selling her finished works on Etsy.com. In her free time, Lela plays basketball and spends quality time with her two gerbils, Num Nums and Scoodles, and her turtle, Sunny.
