Leav has a very strong influence on young adult readers. Her relatability and relevance is largely attributed to the fact that she became famous on Tumblr. Unbeknownst to many, she also has a teenage stepson with her husband, Michael Faudet. She has a deep understanding of the worrisome issues that plague teenagers these days — negative effects of social media, mental health, and superficial relationships.

“I was once a teenager and had the same issues, but we lived in a different world back then. Teenagers still have pretty much the same issues today, but it’s just more complicated to deal with.”

Parents have to be vigilant about the kind of content their children consume, whether online, print or TV. “I always try to put myself in their position to show that someone validates their feelings. But I also try to show them that there is always hope. For those with struggles, they need to know someone understands and that it gets better,” says Leav.

Being a renowned author in the Young Adult fiction category comes with some serious responsibilities. Leav’s poetry, prose and novels are all borne out of her love to inspire and in return, be inspired.
