My name is Cecilia Ann Cochran. I was born and raised in New Orleans but moved to Covington, Louisiana a year before Hurricane Katrina. I am 18 years old and attend LSU, where I study Mass Communications. I am also involved in intramural volleyball and Greek Life.

I have been a part of the West St. Tammany YMCA Leaders’ Club for seven years now. My brother was also a member and he has truly inspired me. He helped found the Leaders’ Club in my area and it is due to his guidance that I am here now. I am proud to call him my role model and friend.

The Blue Ridge Leaders’ School has truly changed my life. I will never be able to describe how amazing it is. What I have learned from the instructors, the staff members and fellow Leaders has shaped me into the person I am today, and I am immensely grateful for that. Though, I have enjoyed all of my classes, Feeling Great was one of my absolute favorites. I am honored to serve the school this year and cannot wait for BRLS 2018!
