Mia is also a part of the BADU Level Up programme in partnership with Nike which focuses on up-skilling women in sport. Her dedication to improving as a coach and young professional is something that hasn’t gone unnoticed. Everyday, Mia’s commitment to her role shows that she understands the impact that she has on young people she coaches and mentors.

“The BADU team have always been supportive of me and are really easy to talk to. Especially because they have a really positive relationship with my mum.

When I started working for BADU I saw the importance of building a positive relationship with the children and their parents and how my influence can shape their future.”
