Strength, style, business acumen, creativity, awareness…. these are just a few of the traits that a Made Woman possesses. When creating our "I Am a Made Woman" video with director/producer Trescher Chambers, we set out to showcase a handful of real women who, in their own respective elements, personify these attributes and many more.
We took a look at our immediate networks and were astounded by the successful women we’ve been fortunate to come in contact with over the years—five of whom became a part of bringing our vision to life:
Dawn Richard: this platinum-selling singer and former member of Danity Kane and Diddy Dirty Money recently launched her solo music career and is the first voice you hear in the video. A passionate musician with an eclectic, soulful sound, you can find out more about her recent solo project here: http://bit.ly/Hw2xZP
Eve Torres: WWE Diva, philanthropist, spokeswoman & instructor for the Gracie Women Empowered Self-defense program and former industrial and systems engineering major at USC (a.k.a. one smart cookie). Our current Made Woman of the Month, you can read more about what Eve is up to here: http://bit.ly/LTaMEe
Allison Torneros: this visual and graphic artist and entrepreneur has turned her artistic talents and passion into a lucrative career, recently showcasing her work at her first solo art show. Read our feature on her here: http://bit.ly/Mcg8Xe
Jaisy Geans: this former USC graduate is the manager of Nine Zero One Salon in West Hollywood and is pulling double duty by also embarking on a career in broadcasting. Jaisy knows how to juggle it all! She manages over 14 employees in a bustling West Hollywood salon, and does it with style.
Rachel Butler-Green: a professional dancer who splits her time between performing on stages around the world and teaching a community dance class, proves what is important to her when she says “I know giving back to the community makes me better.”
These 5 women, in addition to a host of others, helped us to bring to life our vision of what a Made Woman truly is. By forgoing the use of actors—and instead paying tribute to real, hard-working women pursuing their dreams—we upheld the core mission of Made Woman Magazine. We hope that it entertains in addition to painting a clear picture of Made Woman Magazine is headed.
