Ardre Orie was born to lead and empower. As a childhood survivor of household domestic violence, Ardre was motivated to be transparent in her journey and to work tirelessly to empower women suffering from oppressive circumstances in their lives. Her goal as an author, film director and advocate for women is to create platforms and media that allow their voices to be heard.
Ardre Orie’s life’s mission is to uplift women that are seeking to find their strength. As author of Consciously Beautiful: I Am Enough (2014) and A Heroine in Heels (2015); writer and director of theatrical productions Lipstick Monologues and The Heart of a Man; and film director of the documentary I Am Consciously Beautiful, Ardre Orie’s work sheds light on the experiences of women while closely examining the effects of mainstream media and societal norms that have traditionally defined beauty and skewed self-worth in women.
Her works uncover the internal struggles faced by women and continue to lead the charge for redefining beauty goals that include self-worth, educational empowerment and financial stability.
Ardre’s dedication to advocacy has created a national network of women that continue the conversation of self-worth and validation.
