Professor Maja runs a leadership organization that trains women to improve their confidence, communication, and mindset. Maja also speaks to women of all ages on topics such as: confidence, self-promotion, perfectionism, mindset, time-management, and body positivity.
Professor Maja hold a PhD in sociology from McMaster University where she also teaches. Recently, Maja was nominated for the YWCA’s 2017 Woman of Distinction Award, in the category of Education and Mentorship for her commitment to the development of young women.
