Katie Meyler, founder of the More Than Me Academy in Liberia, met with Krishanti Vignarajah, First Lady Michelle Obama’s policy director, Wednesday in Washington D.C., to talk about how her organization fits in with the White House’s #LetGirlsLearn initiative.
Meyler, who grew up in Bernardsville, founded the More Than Me Foundation in 2009 to help young girls in Liberia escape a life of sexual abuse and prostitution.
“More Than Me is Liberia’s leading education innovator and vocal advocate for girls’ empowerment,” said Meyler. “We use education to get our girls to connect with their inner power and to act as a catalyst for change.
