When & Where
Ardre Orie, Writer|Publisher|Playwright|Film Director|Advocate
As a product of a single parent home and a home touched with domestic violence, I found myself searching for confirmation through great uncertainty. When I look in the mirror, I acknowledge that I represent a myriad of women and girls who desperately need resources to even the playing field in life whether through financial or emotional support; such that they will not become reliant on a public system or engage in demeaning and/or threatening behaviors. If I can transform generations of women, I am certain that I can transform the future success of the human race because women provide a significant return on investment.
