In 2020, Louisa and Alessandra launched the Mestiza Heirloom Project as a way to empower communities of women who are leaving a legacy. This past February, we met with high school seniors at Hawthorn Leadership School for Girls in St. Louis to gift them each a Mestiza piece to empower them on the next step of their journey. Today, we're sharing what each student plans to do after graduation. Read more below!
