Mia wanted a pony as a birthday gift, but she got an opportunity to try fencing instead. Ever since she’s been in love with fencing. For the past 6+ years, Mia has embraced and enjoyed every bittersweet moment of this amazing sport with her hard work, dedication, commitment, and perseverance in both fencing and academics. We would like to take a moment and thank each and every coach, teacher, fencer, and friend who has accompanied, encouraged and walked with her along the way.
Thrilled and excited that Mia has chosen UC San Diego to continue her fencing journey with NCAA and to be her new home away from home. Be brave and adventurous with the new chapter of life, and we are and will always be in your corner. Love you so much! Your proud family.
