Leah Abrams believes that the words we choose are a reflection of our deepest values. It’s why she spent a summer pushing a leading civil rights firm to add trans-inclusive language to its style guide.
Now at West Wing Writers, Leah helps clients demonstrate that same moral clarity, penning everything from captivating keynote addresses to viral Twitter threads. Her words have appeared on some of the world’s largest platforms on behalf of foundation presidents, refugee rights activists, and Democratic politicians.
Before taking up speechwriting, Leah graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a double major in Public Policy and History. At Duke, she was awarded highest honors for her senior thesis on criminal justice reform, won the George P. Lucaci prize for creative nonfiction, and slept in a tent for several weeks in exchange for basketball tickets.
A North Carolina native, Leah spends her free time tweeting about NC politics and Carly Rae Jepsen — don’t even get her started.
