About Me
Mia Szarvas was born in Vermont, USA to an Israeli father and Italian-American mother, raised in California, and currently lives in Bremen, Germany. Her grandmother escaped from Poland in August of 1939 with her parents and sister, with whom she set up a new life in Palestine, while the family they left behind perished in the Holocaust. Mia has a degree in Political Ecology from the University of California, Berkeley, holds an M.B.A., and works in tech as a software engineer to create empowerment in unexpected places. She is curious about multiculturalism, languages, feminism, and how our intertwined histories inform the present.
