Notes for Mia

Mia- congrats on graduation! So excited for you and all that is to come! I can’t wait to see you run that marathon someday! Proud of you!

Ahh, you did it! #yousurvived Congratulations! It is a joy to call you friend–you are hands-down one of the sweetest people I know <3 With each Boba/lunch date that we've had, I've seen you grow into a strong woman who follows God's leading even when it's hard. Keep pursuing His truth and I have no doubt that you will continue to thrive, dear Mia 🙂 I look forward to seeing the new heights Jesus takes you to in post-grad life and hope we have many Boba dates to come! Proud of you and love you!

Mia – it’s been so great having you along for the ride with the M&C family as well as my own! Thank you for your friendship on both fronts, and I know many wonderful things await you. Congratulations!!

Congrats, Mia! I’ll never forget your memorable performances as Viola in my Shakespeare class and in the Interregnum Great Speech competition. Jonah and Maddie are cheering you on in spirit as you graduate!

Mia! I am so thankful for you. You helped me get involved with QE1’s service partner – I remember late nights on the train to NYGM, bonding over our love of grocery shopping and people watching. I have enjoyed being in Con Law and Economic Development with you in our senior year. I am so proud of you and wish you the best of luck in your post-grad endeavors.

Mia!!! I am so so proud of you! I’m so grateful that we got placed in the same dynasty. You are going to do amazing things!


Endlessly thankful we ended up rooming together sophomore year- you’ve taught me how to be diligent in all things and walk with grace. Beyond proud to be your friend and so incredibly proud of how much you have accomplished (reigning great speech champion). I cannot wait to see what you do in the next few months and years <3

Mia! My Queen. From helping me on move in day, to Drama Comp, to NYGM, to RaeganSadies, to people confusing me for you my first few weeks! You made my first year of King’s so memorable and continued to add value to my King’s experience. Thankful for you and can’t wait to see all the good you do in the future.

Congratulations Mia! I’ve so enjoyed being in Dr. Rivers’s class with you this semester, and I’m constantly in awe of your beauty and wisdom. I can’t wait to see all that you do in the coming years!

Mia! You are such an iconic queen. You are so kind, and your insight and curiosity have always inspired me! I wish you the best of luck as you enter the world, they are lucky to have you 🙂

MIA!!! Congratulations girl!!! May God bless you in all your future endeavors!!!

Mia, I cherish the fun conversations we had in the M&C office over lunch time. Your sweet presence, your professionalism, your gentleness and patience even in quite trying conversations — you’re the real deal! I admire you and am grateful for the woman you are. One of my favorite memories of you was hearing you talk with amazement about the guest lecturer who took up the PSZ statistics debate. It was great to see you in your element. I hope you find your future endeavors to be a similar challenge and joy. Please stay in touch. Thank you so much for everything.

Mia, we did it!! I am so so so thankful that we were both placed in QE1 freshman year. You make every place you go a little bit sweeter and better by your presence, including our awesome dynasty. It is a privilege to know you, and I wish you the best of luck on all the future will bring you!!

Started at Inviso, now we’re here!! Mia, I believe you’re the very first friend I made at King’s and I’m forever grateful to know you. I’m so proud of all your hard work!


Please accept my belated congratulations on your graduation. I am *finally* signing your digital yearbook profile! I thoroughly enjoyed having you as a student, and advising you on your thesis in spring ’21 was a bonus and a memorable experience for me. I hope that your interest in Russia and international affairs continues to grow, and I look forward to staying in touch in the years ahead. Wishing you many blessings, DLT
