    Career Renaissance of Maye Musk

    Yes, that Musk, the mother of Elon, in fact. But Maye Musk was an inspiration even before her eldest son upended the notion of everything we thought possible. A native of both Canada and South Africa, Maye was born into an adventurous family: her siblings and parents flew 20,000 miles in a plane their father had assembled, and spent summers digging for a mythical lost city. She began modeling as a teenager before becoming a dietician, and she balanced both careers as she raised Elon and his siblings, Kimbal and Tosca. When she split from their father, she put her career on the shelf, eventually moving to Toronto with Tosca to support Elon as he went to university. Recently though, at 69, she’s been experiencing something of a renaissance, appearing on Times Square billboards, booking national campaigns, even appearing in one of Beyoncé’s videos. “I’m living proof that you can find work for an older woman,” she told Vanity Fair in March. “I’ve never worked so much as I do now.”
