  Sative's brand ambassador is our August cover star. World meet Mo Sejake, the CEO of Very Rare clothing label, Model and Aspiring Actor.''Growing up with a belief that anyone, regardless of where they were born or what class they were born into, can attain their own version of success in a society where upward mobility is possible for everyone.
