Dressing Style: Mia dresses pretty vintage but it's more from lack of money rather than a sense of style. As a matter of fact, she loves fashion but it's something she has to enjoy from afar. Most of her clothes are hand-me-downs or secondhand and fairly worn. She does try however to personalize and revamp things in any way she can, which makes her very handy with needle and thread. She does have a lot of jewelry that she has accumulated over the years and loves to wear several rings and necklaces at once. As a whole, her style is fairly androgynous as she never had occasion to dress up growing up, though she does secretly love feminine dresses and things like that.
Face Claim: Marina Nery
General Appearance: Mia comes from a mixed background, and it is very evident in her features. Her hair is very curly and unruly but not as curly as pure African hair, and her eyes and skin are light. Having been raised in a Black British household she presents as such and a lot of her mannerism, slang, and looks come from that. She doesn't wear make-up as she has none of her own but likes to play around with it when using others. She can come off as stand-offish when you first meet her but she does this on purpose.
Likes: fashion, sewing, kids, music, dancing, being the center of attention, spending time with familyGeneral Character Traits: Mia knows what it's like to struggle. She has seen it and experienced it first hand. This has shaped her to a very driven and determined person, and that's at the core of who she is. She puts her family before everything and will do anything for them. Having grown up with a lot of freedom but also responsibility, she is a very independent person. Being used to taking care of herself means that she does not like when others try to underestimate her or do things for her. She's not afraid to speak her mind and can come off as a bit headstrong to some.
Dislikes: racism/purism, reading, math, rich people, cats
Habits/Mannerisms: Pretty much just rolls her eyes a lot
Strengths: loyal: Mia has a strong sense of family and would do anything for her siblings
Hardworking: she’s not afraid of difficult work
Clever: she’s very ingenious in order to get things her way
Proud: She’s unashamed of where she comes from and unapologetic of herself
Empathetic: she’s very understanding to others struggles.
Closed Off: she never shares her true feelings to anyone
Reckless: When determined to do something, she can take it to extremes
Temperamental: with sensitive subjects, small things get to her easily and she gets angry
Pessimist: She always assumes the worst of situations and people.
At her core though, Mia is a girl who ultimately wants what's best for others. She's understanding and compassionate but tends to hide that side of her. Having been forced to grow up quickly, she hides behind a front of an outgoing girl without a care in the world. In the end, however, what she truly craves is love and unconditional acceptance -- for someone to take care of her for a change. She struggles with anxiety but hides that with a passion which makes her a little reserved even for the people she calls her friends. Her anxiety is mainly triggred by stress at home so during the school year she is able to manage it very well and while on breaks, she has developed different coping mechanism over time. She definitely tries to not let it affect her life that often and it's something that is always present in that back of her mind when she is home since she doesn't like to show weaknesses.
TW: Alcohol & Drug Abusue
Mia was the first child of Faith Teague and Robert Bogga. Faith was Robert's mistress, he was married and had two children already. Faith was poor and living in the projects of Cardiff. She stripped for a living and stayed with Robert just so he would help with bills. Together they had one more child: Rose. Shortly after Rose was born, Robert decided to cut-off Faith and disappeared from their lives. Due to the fact that Faith was always working multiple jobs to support them, Mia became a mother role from early on, especially after Faith got pregnant again from a one night stand.
