Leslye Benson is an Albany resident who is the second oldest of six children, and has 13 nieces and nephews. She is currently in the process of redefining herself after going through several hardships within the last five years. In 2015 she had decided to begin an alkaline vegan diet which positively affected her health, as well as encouraged her to make and sell an all-natural detox tea and educate others about their health. As of October 2019 Leslye decided to take the leap and become an entrepreneur and focus on her business, Healthy Wealthy Creations/Lovely Vybez & Tarot Vybez Entity. Her ultimate goal is for all people to see there is no defeat when you realize you are the playing field!
Leslye is participating as a 2020 Off The Mask model because she believes this event embodies her current mindset as she is currently in the process of taking her own mask off, allowing her real self to shine and blossom! This event would be very liberating for her as she has never modeled before and from time to time still struggles with her own image issues.
In light of our Off The Mask campaign being donation dependent, all donations/payments will be processed the following day. If you would prefer to make a donation/payment by cash, check or by a different credit card please contact Kate Tortora, Community Education & Outreach Coordinator.
