Mia’s favorite thing about playing soccer is ... being part of a team where it feels like she belongs.

For Mia, the most difficult thing about soccer is ... running for 80 straight minutes. Away from soccer, Mia likes to ...listen to music and hang out with her friends.

If Mia could switch places with any athlete for a day, she would choose ... Carli Lloyd.

If Mia could travel anywhere in the world, she would go to ... Rome.

Mia’s biggest role model has been ... her grandfather, Bob Barbieri.

One thing Mia can’t live without is

Mia’s biggest fear is ... re-injuring her knee (after tearing an ACL during her sophomore year).

Up next, Mia ... will compete in track and field in the spring. She is planning to attend college and study pre-pharmacy.
