This summer Mia participated in The Fund for American Studies (TFAS) Virtual Summer Program. This DC based program gave her the opportunity to take classes at George Mason University and helped her find an internship. Mia was an intern with the Africa Faith and Justice Network, which works to promote just relations between the African continent and the US government. Despite the unconventional nature of the summer of 2020, she feels as though she was still able to make the most of her time with TFAS.
