Mia Hicks is an 12th grader at Colgan High School. Mia is very passionate about the environment. She has been vegan for 3 years, ran a campaign of living a sustainable life for Miss Teen Virginia, and has organized community wide fundraisers around sustainability. She hopes to educate not only young students caring of the environment, but those who aren’t as aware of the importance the environment has on not only humans but all species we share the planet with.
She is an active executive officer in her school's student council and well connected to her community through volunteering at the streetlight ministry shelter, working with administrators as principles advisory student representative, and a Virginia student council member where she is organizing a state wide service project based around the environment.
