Miya grew up in upstate New York in the town of Ithaca, and is currently a junior at Ithaca High School. She learned about Cragged Mountain Farm from her parents who worked at Cragged while she was still a toddler. At the age of nine she began attending Cragged along with her sister, and immediately fell in love! Here, Miya discovered her love for the outdoors and exploring the mountains and rivers of New England. She returned every year and eventually went on her most memorable trip, the Allagash; a month of canoeing and other wilderness adventures. She’s made lifelong friends at Cragged Mountain and is very excited to start her first year as a junior staff member!
