Leandra was born and brought up in an orthodox Jewish family in Manhattan. She studied journalism from the New School’s Eugene Lang College.

She continued writing for a year on the blog, and finally decided to launch another blog which we today know as Men Repeller.com. Leandra shares that the idea of the blog came into the picture when she went on a trip with her friend, Rachel Strogatz. On her trip, she realized how everything around the place was a man-repelling; enormous shoulder pads, acid-washed harem pants and it was when she knew, she could write about it.

Initially, while working on the blog she collaborated with major magazines like Lucky and Harper’s Bazaar. Leandra’s blog was on fire, and she then decided to work full-time on her blog.
