This school provides a supportive environment where students learn leadership skills, compassion, and decision-making through academics and social-emotional learning. Mae’s inspiration is to encourage young women to take charge of their lives and create a life without limits, using her mojo: “You don’t have to wait for a seat at the table. You can create your own table.”
