Hyde Graduate On Challenges of an Education Thousands of Miles from Home

When Mika Webman was 14 years old, she and her family made a bold and difficult decision. Mika would travel over 5300 miles across the Atlantic Ocean to a small town called Bath, Maine, where Mika would attend the Hyde School. 2 years, many classes, and a global pandemic later, Mika graduated this last June, at just 16 years old.
