Characteristics and Traits Edit
Mia is the most artistic and creative of the group, being an avid fashion lover. She is an aspiring fashion designer and has won several competitions with her work (her biggest one being in Mia's Recipe for Disaster).
Due to her unique talents, she is appointed the official decorator of the Cupcake Club, being in charge of the style and appearance of the group's cupcakes.
Mia's full name is Amelia and honed her nickname "Mia" when her dad kept referring to her as "Mija" (which is pronounced similarly to 'Mia'). Her original best friend from New York is Ava Monroe, who shares a love of fashion with Mia. She is also the owner of two fluffy dogs named Tiki and Milkshake.
Mia is extroverted and a social butterfly at heart and enjoys meeting new people, though she can sometimes become unaware of the feelings of others.
Mia is described to be very pretty. She has long, straight black hair, brown, almond-shaped eyes, and a oval shaped face which compliments her look. She also has a similar nose to her dad. She is said to be a bit tall and has an athletic figure from soccer. In book 14, Mia gets glasses and clear braces. Although she doesn't think she looks good in them, everyone else thinks she looks great. Mia is a major fashionista and is always decked out in stylish clothes thanks to her mom, who is a stylist.
Mia also loves reading books, especially the book Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
