​Parents, teachers, and students alike are inspired and empowered by Clara’s presentation. Here’s what past attendees have to say:

“Clara Lee, entrepreneur, artist, and author of The Cupcake Theory presented at Rolling Hill Middle School PTA. Ms. Lee did a wonderful job of demystifying relationships. Her “Cupcake Theory” examined the foundation of a relationship (the cake) relative to the superfluous fluff (the frosting) which can make or break a relationship. Her personal experiences relative to self-esteem is poignant and beneficial for all teens and adults experiencing self-image and relationship issues to really understand the importance of nurturing and being yourself. Schools can benefit from Ms. Lee’s coaching as it can lead to empowerment of today’s youth. Thanks for sharing your gift of storytelling.”

-Louisa Mendoza, Rolling Hills Middle School PTA President


"Dear Clara, I just had the random chance to meet you at RHMS just now. Wow. It's like God was sending out a message. Do you know how many times I have talked with numerous moms of teens about the need for our kids to have some positive and healthy life-coaching, personal skills taught and established at this age to help guide and grow them through their lives? You are so COOL and amazing!"

-Anne P., Substitute Teacher / Parent

"Hi Clara, My name is Sydney. I was so inspired by your visit and your book that I am having a small group discussion about it. I am teaming with a few girls to help me run it!"

-Sydney R., Student
