What was growing up like for you?

"Generally average, I think. Confusing, but exciting. Always kind of a loner."

Do you see yourself as Model?

"Sometimes. Modelling is what I do, but it is just an accidental experience that could flourish or fade at any time."

Who is Leah Jung?

"Just a girl. Friends and foes sure have a mouthful to say about me, but I can be grouped as "female." Mostly human. Mostly right-brained."

When did you become involved in modelling and what do you love about it?

"I first modelled when I was still a teenager. I have only taken it seriously for the last two years. It is a very rewarding experience from the moment I start to get ready, until the day the photos are released, or the until the audience applauds, or whatever it may be. Every day is different."

What would you like to do in the future?

 "I plan on touring as a singer. I talk about it constantly, so I hope that all works out because I haven't got a plan b."

What do you admire in other women?

"Gentle confidence. Giant Brains."

Are you a fashion brands girl or do you just wear what you like or

"I don't think about fashion, ever. I like jeans or leggings, with t-shirts or tank tops. Dresses in the mix. High heels."

Who would you say is your style icon?

"Maybe that's my problem...I can't pinpoint anyone. Lately, I have noticed that I could probably take over Rachel Bilson's closet and be content with that."

What's your take on life and what advice would give any of your fans?

"Whatever is bothering you, get over it."
