Peggy Gosselin says ... on Sunday, May 20 at 11:21 PM

Squeezing in another and final vote from me. Comments have been "right on" and know that you are already a winner and champion in so many ways Tiffany. You have so much well-earned love, respect and support throughout the community. Stay cool!

Shannon Runca says ... on Sunday, May 20 at 8:13 AM

Last day of voting/breaths are being held/over 200 comments/quite an accomplishment! You are a young lady who has so wisely applied gifts that God has given her. You are a beautiful reflection of your family's love and compassion. You ARE a winner!

Kim Rizzo says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 8:03 PM

I just heard. I wish I had known all this week for voting. But I will make this comment on how wonderful you truly are. I have known this young woman most of her life and have ALWAYS been impressed by the things she does. Bravo Tiffany!

Robert Reynolds says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 7:58 PM

Your mom is on a role tonight, calling everyone. She told me so. Tiffany & Tara you were terrific in that video. I don't think others realize that the whole family does community volunteering all the time. However, tonight my vote is on you.

Carla T. says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 7:54 PM

Tiffany and Tara, your mom just called me to see your video and vote for you. I definitely knew you guys were in to volunteering, but not to this extend. The satisfaction you must get from all this. You are a true TEEN ROLE MODEL for our community.

Valerie Simmons says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 7:49 PM

Tiffany your mom called me to see your video. Holy Cow Girl! You totally rock! I had no idea you were into such volunteering things. Do you even realize how many lives you truly touch by all this. All I can say is....WOW! You have my vote.

George Jenkins says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 11:14 AM

My vote is on you. Wow, what a video. Good job on the hard work that went into making this video. Not only all the work that Tiffany & Tara do but the Director Ethan - good job to everyone!

Ilene O. says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 8:33 AM

I had no doubts that you would be up for this award. You and your family are so giving. You honestly deserve this award and thus my vote is on you. Please keep up the good community giving. We all need individuals like you to help our world.

Jeffrey Oggle says ... on Saturday, May 19 at 8:30 AM

I have met this entire family before in Kirkland. I was extremely impressed with all of them. They rally together the way a true American family should. Everyone in it for one common goal. They do more volunteering than what this video depicts.

Meredith G. says ... on Friday, May 18 at 10:31 PM

Tiffany you have my vote. Your video spoke to me in many ways. The children at the hospital, students at the schools, and the soldiers, each walking away a little more enriched by your generosity in giving of yourself. My hat is off to you!

Jeremy Paulson says ... on Friday, May 18 at 10:25 PM

Wow! My brother, friend, and myself just watched Tiffany video and was asked to comment. What can one say to someone who has done so much. A simple "thank you" really doesn't cover it..... but...THANK YOU! You have my vote.

Jonathan Paulson says ... on Friday, May 18 at 10:22 PM

Tiffany I was very impressed with your video. One so young doing so many things for our community. I am voting for you.

Mary F. says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:27 PM

My vote is for you. You are awesome. First of all I love your book Annadyomene, when is the sequel? And will Anna and Liam get married? Just wondering. We all love you Tiffany. You have my vote.

Yvette Howard says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:14 PM

You are one of the greatest people I know. You are definitely one of the best authors I have read. I was so excited to meet you and have a picture with you. You have my vote.

Sarah Grossman says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:12 PM

We love you Tiffany. I won your contest and had so much fun at Microsoft. Will you come back to our school soon? I think you are really pretty too!

Michelle Roberts says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:06 PM

Tiffany you are so great, I wish I could write like you. Annadyomene is the best book I have read. My mom is very happy that she finally got me to read something for the fun of it. When is the sequel?

Opehlia Barnes says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:04 PM

I want to vote for Tiffany because she is wonderful to us kids. She never gets mad at us and we can ask her anything we want. We love her so much. I wish she would come and teach at our school.

Katie G. says ... on Friday, May 18 at 3:02 PM

We are at school right now and we all want to vote for Tiffany. Our school got your contest and we all did it, and we had so much fun because you let us write about our heroes.

Grace D. says ... on Friday, May 18 at 2:57 PM

We are all at school right now and we all want to vote for Tiffany. We love you Tiffany.

Jessica Kemper says ... on Thursday, May 17 at 5:32 PM

Tiffany you really are fantastic. Just to think of all the people you have helped through all your volunteering is amazing. Keep it up girl, you totally rock! My vote is one you!

Sue Patterson says ... on Thursday, May 17 at 8:52 AM

Tiffany & Tara came to my school and they were so fun. To really get to meet Tiffany, an author of her own book, was the closet thing I have ever come to meeting a celebrity. I love you Tiffany. You have my vote.

Chuck Coleman says ... on Wednesday, May 16 at 11:07 PM

Fabulous Job Tiffany. You really have worked hard for this award, hope you win it. You have my vote and backing.

Debbie Coleman says ... on Wednesday, May 16 at 11:06 PM

What a great video, you have my vote. I work for a huge office and I am going to have everyone watch this video tomorrow. All the volunteering you do actually humbles the rest of us.

Ashley says ... on Wednesday, May 16 at 7:42 PM

I met Tiffany once when she came to my school. She's a truly great person and I am glad to vote for her!

Ethan Seneker says ... on Tuesday, May 15 at 9:39 AM

Tiffany, it was an absolute pleasure working with you. Thank you so much for giving me this oppurtunity and letting me witness true sacrifice and kindness. It was really special.

Julie Jason says ... on Monday, May 14 at 7:24 PM

I had to see for myself why one of the entries is up to almost 200, and now I know. Your video is really moving. The bond between the two sisters is very heart warming to say the least. I hope you win.

MaryLynn Graham says ... on Monday, May 14 at 12:08 PM

Your video was great and you help so many people will your volunteering. Good Job! You have my vote.

Natalia Gutenberg says ... on Sunday, May 13 at 6:28 PM

You have my vote. You have a way about you that hypnotizes those listening to you. It's not just your beautiful face but it is the way you say things that gets your message across to others. KOMO 4 needs to listen and do a commercial on you.

Daniel King says ... on Sunday, May 13 at 5:22 PM

I must admit you had my curiosity aroused by so many comments (195). Then I saw your video and completely understood why you would get so many. Your demeanor is one of your greatest ally, you must hold on to this for you will go far in this world.

Bryan F. says ... on Sunday, May 13 at 4:32 PM

Just heard about this award and watched the videos, and all I can say is very nice. Tiffany you have a much different video in the fact that you give yourself to several areas that I can associate with. My one question, where do you find the time?

Kathy B. says ... on Sunday, May 13 at 11:25 AM

My vote is on Tiffany. What great things you have chosen to do in your start in life. You need to be recognize for all your hard work. Hope you win.

Kevin B. says ... on Sunday, May 13 at 11:24 AM

Nice video! Makes me feel good when I see young people like Tiffany Leahy and her sister doing these things for our community. We, as adults, need to nurture this into something bigger and give more exposure to this kind of behavior. Good Work!

Jeffrey Jr. (JJ) says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 9:24 PM

I just sat and watched all the videos how outstanding many of them are. However, I found yours a bit more overall in the community. You seemed to have covered all the bases. Bravo to all the winners, and may the best person win.

Chuck D. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 7:33 PM

I am friends basically with Tiffany and Tara's brothers. They never told anyone how awesome their sisters are. You have my vote for sure. My little cousin was in at Children's Hospital and it was really serious and now he's OK. A big thank you.

Nancy S. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 7:13 PM

I am married to someone in the military and want to thank Tiffany & Tara for all the letters and candies they send to our guys over there. I wish everyone would share this kind of giving. Thank you you have my vote.

Henry S. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 7:09 PM

I'm military, and I am so happy to see something for our soldiers. Thank you so much, Tiffany & Tara, for doing what you are doing for our soldiers. It might seem so small but it is so important, again thank you!

Carla D. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 5:53 PM

Number 4 Fan: I think I want to be just Tiffany some day. I want to write a book. I love to talk with Tiffany becasue she doesn't ever brag about what she does, she just does it without praise. That's important to me, the silent heroes in our live

Linda Marie F. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 5:50 PM

Number 3 Fan: Our vote is for Tiffany Leahy. Her video was marvelous but unfortunately only shows a small section of what Tiffany is really giving to her community. I wish they would run her video for everyone to see it on the TV stations.

Jennifer L says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 5:48 PM

Number 2 Fan: We all love Tiffany. She came to our school and talked to us about doing our own writing and someday doing our own books. That would be a dream come true.

Sara Q. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 5:46 PM

Number 1 FAN: We are part of Tiffany's Fan Club. She is smart, kind, and most of all beautiful. We can't wait until we are older and go volunteering along side Tiffany.

Casey T. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 1:03 PM

Totally rocks, my vote is on Tiffany Leahy. Your video is fabulous....... GO VIRAL!

Paul P. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 1:02 PM

Great job Tiffany, my vote is on you.

Louis H. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 1:01 PM

My vote is for Tiffany & Tara they have an amazing video. Will this be on KOMO 4 news? I sure hope so, they need more stories like this. BRAVO KOMO 4!

Janet & Barbara says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 1:00 PM

Clara Smart says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:45 PM

My vote is on Tiffany. You totally put the rest of us into a huge wake-up call for volunteering.

Janice Furlough says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:43 PM

Just saw the video and totally agree that it should go on Youtube and go viral. People need to see all over what we are doing up here in Washington State. Hurray for Tiffany! She is a perfect example of a true Washingtonian. Yeah!

Henry H. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:40 PM

We are at Microsoft. They had a ceremony here with Tiffany. And now people are voting for her - just saw the video I had not even heard about her before. WoW! That video should go viral to show people the importance of community involvement.

Tom J. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:38 PM

My vots is on Tiffany Leahy. Good Job!

Shayna Goyman says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:38 PM

My daughter had Tiffany come to her school for this contest for her book Annadyomene. What a total complete change in my daughter now she writes and reads all the time and even wants to look like Tiffany. What a great role model you are. Bravo!

Nathan H. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:26 PM

My vote is for Tiffany Leahy. Our community would be a very sad and lonely place without having leaders like Tiffany working for us, instead of against us. Does Mayor McGinn know about her yet?

Leslie H. says ... on Saturday, May 12 at 12:25 PM

Well I am glad your site is up and running. My vote is on Tiffany, she is amazzing and hard working and really deserves this award. You totally rock, Tiffany.

Peggy G. says ... on Friday, May 11 at 3:15 PM

Need to find out the different places you will be speaking so that I can schedule some time to come and hear you in person. Know it will be a joy.

Lindsay Ryan says ... on Friday, May 11 at 7:58 AM

Tiffany love your book, Annadyomene, and love you. What a great role model you are for our students. Even more so, what a great role model you are for all of us to get involved in our coimmunity. Everyone can do a little something for others.

Don Fraser says ... on Friday, May 11 at 3:30 AM

Greetings from Liverpool, UK. Have heard and read of Tiffanys great work. She has our vote.

Pamela Chang says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 7:57 PM

It's never cold in your shadow Tiffany for you are the wind beneath my wings. You absolutley soar. Please please keep up the marvelous job you are doing. BLESS YOU !

Tanya Swenson says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 7:23 PM

You have my vote for sure - you are amazing!

Barbara Hanson says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 7:15 PM

I have had the extreme opportunity to work with/beside Tiffany. And she is truly just what you see on the video. She is kind, caring, but most of all giving. She is very soft spoken but her deeds can deliver quite a punch.

Clara Coine says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 7:03 PM

You have my vote too. You are amazing. You came to our school and we have a fan club. We LOVE YOU!

Heidi M. says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 7:02 PM

You have my vote - we love you Tiffany.

Theresa B. says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 6:55 PM

I am very impressed with what I saw on the video. You have given of yourself to so many people and have asked nothing in return. You are one of God's chosen.

Stan B. says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 6:53 PM

Tiffany doesn't take the free ride in her life. She plays it to full throttle. You are totally number ONE! You will be rewarded in so many ways, you just wait. It will happen when you least expect it.

Robin Hunter says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 6:42 PM

Wow! Just watched Tiffany & Tara's video in the library and was blown away with their contributions to our community and they are so young too. You guys totally have it together. You have my vote.

Colleen & Jessica says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 6:27 PM

We are voting for Tiffany because she reads to us in the library and makes the stories fun for us. She talks to us about what she has done and we want to write to the soldiers too.

Harold James says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 6:10 PM

Tiffany you are so beautiful not just outside but from within. Your giving to our community is unending, I truly admire that. You have my vote for sure!

Eaddie Young says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 5:30 PM

I am so proud of your accomplishments Tiffany. I met you this last winter at one of your book signings for your book. I was so thrilled to meet an author from our area, but I had no idea what else you have been doing. You are quite a young woman.

Kevin Hutchinson says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 10:21 AM

What an incredible voyage this young woman is on. You are a force to be reckon with, everyone should take note of you and pay some attention. Bravo KOMO 4!! for seeing this and drawing attention to her for us all to see.

Kimberlee Matson says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 8:43 AM

I feel that community service starts from the home front. Tiffany has done just that she sees a need and goes out to right it. We all need to listen to the innocent and take notes.

Sarah Quinn says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 8:40 AM

My vote is on you, you are great.

Jimmy Riley says ... on Thursday, May 10 at 8:36 AM

Tiffany ... I really want to vote for you but this site is not allowing my submission. If I cannot vote by tonight, I will be calling KOMO and find out why. You deserve all the votes you can get!

Peggy G. says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 11:31 PM

What Tiffany has done, and the example she has set for her work in the community, will certainly impact what other young people decide to do with their life as well. She is a terrific role model.

Connie S. says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 8:24 PM

I was very impressed with all the work that Tiffany (& Tara) has done for the community. You definitely earned and derserve this award. You have my vote.

Carol Sherman says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 8:12 PM

Just as I told a bunch of friends, at school, about Tiffany and this award the website is down, Really? How can we get our votes in?

Karen & Kevin says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 8:06 PM

We have been trying to vote for Tiffany all afternoon and it won't go through, is the voting over?

Jimmy Riley says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 3:26 PM

Tiffany, loved your video. Tried to submit my vote and the website would not take it! I voted and then pressed 'submit' and all it did was freeze up my machine! Hoping they get it corrected soon. I will check back this evening and try to vote.

Ted Thomson says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 2:23 PM

I have tried, also, to vote and can't although I do enjoy viewing the videos. Will try and get back on later.

Alice Gomez says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 2:19 PM

I have tried several times to vote and it won't let me. Is the system down or something? O.o

Shane Weitzel says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 9:59 AM

Karen Karr says ... on Wednesday, May 9 at 9:30 AM

My vote is on Tiffany. She came to my school and I won in her contest. Thank you Tiffany.

Sharon & Mike says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 10:58 PM

We heard about this award through our children's school. We visited each video and they all have something to contribute, but Tiffany you have done so much with the school, military, and then Seattle Children's Hospital. We admire your committment.

Nate W. says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 9:59 PM

After watching Tiffany's video I am humbled by her willingness to give to others who she doesn't know and some she will never meet. That is a very hard thing to do when you will never hear a thank you. Well THANK YOU TIFFANY LEAHY for everything,

Gary Smither says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 6:34 PM

I vote for Tiffany. KUDOS! You are really beautiful inside and out!

Mary B. says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 6:32 PM

I'm the mom/driver of this bunch. Your work for the community is beyond belief. You are special in so many ways. We could all learn from you. Please keep as sweet as you are and you will go far. Thank you for all your hard work.

Catherine F. says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 6:30 PM

We all love you Tiffany. We love your book Annadyomene too. My mom bought it and we have all read it. We love Liam. Let him and Anna get married. Thank you for everything you have done.

John Wright says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 4:11 PM

These two sisters are a force to be admired that is for sure. TARA is an incredible sales person for her sister TIFFANY, and I just saw Tiffany's video and blew me off the chair. Where do they find the time to do all these things? You have my vote

George Samson says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 3:35 PM

I wanted to vote for Tiffany Leahy today because I believe in what she is doing for our community. After seeing what she has done, it makes me feel bad I didn't do something with volunteering sooner. I applaud you Tiffany.

Peggy Gosselin says ... on Tuesday, May 8 at 1:35 PM

So much wisdom and talent for such a young and beautiful young lady in all ways. Your spirit and enthusiam has touched many lives and will continue to do so, because you love what you are doing and want to share what you have been given. Bless you!

Brandis Geddes says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 9:53 PM

Tiffany is obviously a young woman who sets goals and gets things done. It is refreshing to see such initiative in an 18 year old. There is no question that she is a hands down winner for this contest!

Ciara Booth says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 9:29 PM

"If today was your last day, and tomorrow was too late, could you say goodbye to yesterday" (Nickelback band) Think about this, Tiffany got this message....... has anyone else? Tiffany, you're starting small but you will end BIG!

Rick Prichard says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 8:40 PM

Tiffany you see visions of what our community needs and you have the moxie to go out and fix it, and that is truly a blessed thing. Your reward might not be now, but someone much higher, than us, will truly reward you for all your kind acts.

Sam Rusher says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 8:20 PM

All of us guys think what you are doing is truly changing our community for the better. THIS WORLD IS A MUCH BETTER PLACE BECAUSE OF YOUNG PEOPLE LIKE TIFFANY LEAHY!!!!!! Look at all these supporters. How can anyone not be humbled by this?

What an extraordinary portrait of an outstanding young lady. Inspirational and touching. Those who are touched by your deeds have every cause to realise they are in the presence of someone very special. You are truly a credit to your family.

Tom Jenkins says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 1:51 PM

Let's not start listing off the accomplishments of this young girl. She is so amazing. We need her on the nightly news (Hello KOMO4....) telling some positive things instead of all the depressing news that is always on.

Karen Roberts says ... on Saturday, May 5 at 1:49 PM
