Mia is a senior majoring in Communication and minoring in Business. She was the 2020 president of USC’s chapter of Gamma Phi Beta. Besides Gamma Phi Beta, she is a communications intern for the company FunBoy and is a former member of USC’ Model United Nations team. Mia described leading such a large group of women as “my favorite thing I have done. It is amazing to see your vision come to life and just small things come to life. It can be stressful but everything that comes with it is rewarding.” She ran for president because she had a vision for the house and during her time as Master Day Chair of Recruitment she realized that she wanted to make recruitment a positive experience for everyone both inside and wanting to join the house. While she loved being in charge recruitment, Mia says she wanted to get involved in all aspects of the house.
Regarding the chapter’s steps toward change and inclusion, Mia admires her sisters for having “such a strong vision and passion for what they want to see.” She recognizes that the inclusion initiatives they announced are just a first step. Some fun facts about her is that she loves musicals and Chicago is her favorite show and she considers herself to have a Type A Personality. The legacy she wants to leave as president of G Phi is one of growth. She wants to leave G Phi in a better way than when she got there. “I believe that there is always room for growth.", she says, "I wanted our members to see me as a leader who was easy and approachable to reach out”. Her advice to future Trojans is to “try everything, put your foot in anything you can, and get as involved as possible. Once you find what you are really passionate about, put your energy fully into it. You will never regret that, but you will regret not completely trying something out.”
