A book of poetry by Sabrina Samuel, a local artist and mental health advocate. She Was is a book of poems about women who have both influenced and inspired her. Through the poetry she illuminates their power alongside their humanity. Names are not used, but each work has a clue in it about who it is. The entire project was an exercise in gratitude. Her hope is it will land on the hearts of the reader and stir memories and qualities up that feel familiar from women they know and love.
She Was is a fundraiser with 50% of the proceeds supporting the Central Alberta Sexual Assault Centre
