SHE IS MADE is a Black woman-based network. Our network is used to empower Black women, our families, and the communities in which we reside in. We are deeply rooted in cultivating workshops, events, and sharing resources to impact our community, to heal and foster safe spaces. We use creative writing, art, and poetry, as a tool for mental health and wellness. We believe that our voices and creativity combined can help in providing deeper understanding of emotions and self-awareness. We heal ourselves and help provide the tools and resources to heal our communities. It is in using our voices and art, that we can help spread different messages and communicate with people on a different scale.
We share our resources to create impactful changes within our community and abroad.
Our Voice. Our Art. Our Power.

“Leonora’s spirit and presence is so penetrating that you can feel her amazing vibes just being around her. Leonora's passion, creativity and true commitment to embracing, supporting and uplifting others is apparent through She is MADE, her poetry and community leadership events. Leonora is such an amazing light. Her poetry, podcasts, visuals and community events all showcase just a tiny portion of who I’ve been lucky enough to experience. Her love and passion for women, our people, our history, and our future is undeniable and is expressed in all that she does."
“Poetry could never be lost when you are reading work like this. The writer was right there with me mentally, I felt her through her words. Her writing style is very relatable, it felt like I knew her personally. She brought me into her life and the world through her creative lens. Many layers are revealed as you journey through chapters of poetry that tell an overarching theme. If you haven't already, be sure to purchase "MADE." and "Linguistic Gravity". I cant wait for more from her.”
“I feel heard. I feel connected. I feel understood when I see the content on She is MADE. Always empowering and self-reflective! Grateful to be following this platform and I always look forward to attending She is MADE events. During She is MADE's last event I was informed on how to become a homeowner, supporting previously incardinated members of communities, policy reform, the importance of voting, and creating generational wealth."
