Your Presenter

Hi there!

I'm Mia, a final year Masters of Secondary Teaching student at the University of Melbourne, and I'm the founder of The Student Space.

I founded the Student Space during my gap year after graduating from a Bachelor of Commerce (also at The University of Melbourne), when I realised there are many things school doesn’t teach you.

I'm super passionate about sharing insights to students about high school, life after school and how to actually be an adult, and I do this through my podcast and school workshops.

During my Masters degree I received the Norman Curry Scholarship, achieved the Dean's Honours list and co-designed a workshop in collaboration with the University of Melbourne.

I'm passionate about inspiring the next generation and was also a panellist for Youth Leadership Academy Australia’s conference.

When I'm not studying or working, you’ll find me outdoors running, bike riding or surfing (or more like attempting to stand up on the board) 🏄

Everyone Loves The Student Space ❤️

Who would have thought that a podcast about school could be entertaining!

"...The host of the show was excellent as she was able to stimulate conversation with her guest by asking all the right questions, the type of questions the audience wanted answered whilst listening. The guest of the show also had a lot to offer sharing a strong insight into the uni life and also past learnings from the schooling environment. It is fair to say this duo was a dynamic and I among many others am excited for the next episode."
