Hannah Leary is a 2015 homeschool graduate and serves as the co-host to the National Bible Bee Competition. As the winner of the inaugural National Bible Bee Game Show and a competitor in the National Bible Bee Competition for six years, she can’t think of a better way to have spent the days of her youth than studying and memorizing the Word of God.  This study has led to her memorizing 12 books of the Bible! 

Now, as she ministers in her local church and community, she is passionate about encouraging and equipping other young people to get into God’s Word and to build a biblical foundation for their lives.  Hannah lives with her parents, six sisters, and three brothers in NY.
