She is the great-granddaughter of the late Mary and Louis Singer of Bratislava, Czechoslovakia, the late Marinka and Ivan Goldberger of Budapest, Hungary, the late Sadie and Sydney Jacobs of New Orleans and the late Betty and Jordan Brown of New Orleans.

A sixth-grade student at Ladue Middle School, Mia is a competitive swimmer, soccer player, artist, entrepreneur and volunteer at the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. Mia enjoys spending time outdoors with her friends and her two dogs, Stanley and Riley. She also loves summer camp (Camp Thunderbird for Girls).

Mia’s mitzvah projects included making dog collars from paracord for The Humane Society, baking cookies and cupcakes for frontline healthcare workers during the pandemic and volunteering at the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry.
