Being a director comes with a whole different skill set and immense responsibly too”, says Mia.
Mia has been living in the US since 2011, but only in 2018 decided to finally give a try as an actress. Back in Brazil, Mia graduated as a journalist and worked as a TV Host for almost 8 years in Sao Paulo, before moving to the United States. She had already flirted with acting at home, being in a theater play as well in an awarded short movie, but her intentions were kept within journalism.

However, on American soil, Mia quickly caught attention of a talent agent in Los Angeles that offered her a working visa as an actress. Mia went then to improve her acting skills in an UCLA program and from there everything is becoming history.
