Mia HonrubiaMia Honrubia

Hello! My name is Mia Honrubia, and I am a sophomore from McAllen, TX studying Human Biology, Health, and Society at the College of Human Ecology. I am a certified lactation counselor and found my passion for neonatology by volunteering in the NICU. I have since instituted several programs to better the lives of premature infants and their mothers and hope to continue my research here at Cornell. On Campus, I like to keep active, playing the Brazilian club sport, Footvolley (it is similar to beach volleyball, except no hands allowed)! Through Meinig, I not only have the opportunity to meet the current leaders on our beautiful Campus, I also get to collaborate with other members.
