Leah "Vinyl" Hedrick
Leah joined the Ship of Fools at the end of the 2012 Spring Semester. Her nickname is still somewhat being debated, but "Vinyl" comes from a rather dizzying, round-about background. When Leah joined the Fools, she was considered to be the female form of Andrew "Peace" Blatt. She is known as "Lady Peace", or "LP". LP Records are made of vinyl. To avoid that confusing story, as well as to sound cute, Fools also call her "Ouia".
Leah's first show was the "LAUGH"ayette FUNstival, September 15, 2012 in Matthews 210.

Leah was born and raised in southern Indiana, in the town of Vincennes. There she did many unremarkable things, and also founded an improv troupe at her high school. At Purdue, she studies botany and creative writing and is sometimes seen running around dressed as the TARDIS from Doctor Who. Her spirit Pokémon is Bellossom. Leah's super power is fixing the typos in the universe, and her arch nemesis is the broken backspace key. Her special abilities include making clothing that would look ridiculous on anyone else look good, and expertly distracting people from doing math. Bees hate her.
