During Living Streets events, you can find her: gradually edging closer and closer to the snacks
I teach violin, viola, and music theory, and I also tutor maths! Watch me play at this link.
What does community mean to you?
To me, community is caring about people that you don’t really know, and then actually getting to know them! I think Living Streets encapsulates that really well by caring for and creating a better space for everyone, including our own members, but also neighbours that can’t be as actively involved and future neighbours that haven’t even moved in yet.
I like to volunteer at Living Streets because…
I joined initially because I was interested in built design and how it influences communities. I stayed because of the incredible people I met, and the clear passion everyone has for making their community a better place. Even though I’m not from Watson, everyone at Living Streets has been so welcoming, and I feel like part of the community!
Hi, my name is Mia, and I study environmental studies and computer science at the ANU. I was born in Japan and grew up in Brisbane, but now I call Canberra home! Outside of uni, I play the violin in a string quartet and play soccer and futsal. Somewhere down the line, I hope to be an urban planner or a school teacher!
