With a Scottish and English background, Mia spent most of her childhood going to school in Surrey and travelling up to Dundee with her father to see family during the half-terms and holidays.
Mia’s awareness of her very British background instilled in her the desire to see the world and begin her studies in travel and tourism as well as photography. She soon discovered that her passion lay within the creative side of technology, which pushed her to carry out a Level 3 Digital Marketing apprenticeship through a small start-up travel agency that specialises in organising events across Europe. Since then Mia has completed a Level 4 qualification in Digital Marketing, grown an Instagram account from 8k to 22k followers, and visited some popular cities such as Berlin, Amsterdam, Croatia, and New York.
During her studies and travels, Mia’s love for animals sparked a curiosity in sustainability. She decided to become vegan and to this day she makes ‘greener’ decisions in the way she lives her everyday life. Having moved Africa to the very top of her bucket list, she is thrilled to have started working for a safari company that gives back to wildlife sanctuaries and other charities.
