Aside from politics, Mica considers herself a coffee aficionado; she has worked as barista at a local coffee shop for almost a year. Mica is also National Chief Operations Officer of the National Black MBA Association Leaders of Tomorrow. She enjoys blogging, debating, reading, spending time with family and friends, and volunteering. Having a father who is a firefighter and a mother who works for a nonprofit organization, she mostly writes about middle class issues, but also boundless topics in education. Mica plans on majoring in finance or business economics, but her travels to Western Europe have also sparked her interest in Foreign Service.
