Mia's video entry for the 2020-2021 Slumber Search Disrupt $1,000 Scholarship focuses on disrupting the skincare industry by creating more sustainable packaging and an innovative subscription service. By highlighting how much waste exists in skincare packaging and explaining the disadvantages of single-use products, Mia positions her brand, Skin Clarity, as a solution. She explains how her visionary subscription service will revolutionize the space by using water-activated tablets, reusable glass containers, and a helpful profile creator that adapts to each customer's monthly skincare challenges.
While Mia is only entering her first year at Boston University, she conveyed an entrepeunerial drive ready for the post-collegiate world with her fleshed out idea and clear / concise video. Mia also has an impressive background -- serving her alma mater as Senior Vice President in Class Council, and serving in both the National Honor Society and American Cancer Society.
In her video, Mia did an excellent job demonstrating the current environmental challenges and waste facing the skincare industry with metrics and news sources. By creating a brand identity, Skin Clarity and using high quality video transitions to drive her points, her video was well-polished and entertaining while providing clarity to her idea's mission, identity, and industry opportunity.
In addition to excelling in school, she also has a passion for filmmaking. She was heavily involved with her school's film program, by directing, shooting, editing, and producing news broadcasts, PSA's, commercials, music videos, and more. She definitely showcased her expertise in her winning scholarship video entry.
I plan to major in Film and Television and Public Relations. I also plan to minor in Political Science. At BU, I hope to find my creative voice as a filmmaker while creating films which focus on topics that I'm passionate about. After college, I want to become a documentary filmmaker. I'd like to create films which help educate the general public about various issues such as climate change.
We wish Mia all the best in her future endeavors at Boston University and beyond. Congratulations, Mia!
