DESIGNER, DANCER, JOURNALIST
Ella Audrey Rae (born May 04 1995) is an American web designer, editor in chief, and dancer from Norfolk , Virginia. In 2010 she created lifestyle and music publication, Reignland Magazine. RLM is now on it’s 38th issue. This year she has launched empowering girls social network GirlX, creative arts and media agency Reignland and online radio station GXL Radio.
Rae graduated from high school in 2013 and did not attend college. She cites that she taught herself web deign and coding when he was 15. “Im a reader, so I researched a ton until it became second nature. I love creating in any field. You have to have a lot of patience.”
Rae has been invited to cover NYC Fashion Week and Ashley Stewert’s #FindingAshleyStwert event for her publication. She has also been supported by retail company, Tobi and was featured in Illesthetic Magazine’s 6th issue.
Rae states that being creative kept her the most positive in dark times “There were many times that life tried to completely destroy me but the ability to design and turn that pain into a work of art was my ultimate lifesaver. It’s like yeah that experience wasn’t the best but let me turn it around by making it into something that brings a smile to someone else’s face going through the same thing. I love making people feel good about themselves.”
In August 2019, she released the first two chapters to her book The Love Struck Diaries. The book is based on stories from her life and was written to not only free her but others who can relate.
