At a young age, Mia Becker had always had a nose into getting into trouble. To pranking the neighborhood or just getting nosey into other people business. At age six she befriended a boy named Michael Parker in elementary school. Michael would be the one that would keep her in check, and fuel her drive to be a journalist. At the age of 10, Mia began to realize she had a knack for easily eavesdropping and sneaking around unwanted areas. Putting these abilities to use, when she turned 15 she started up a blog about corrupt politicians and scandals revolving around America itself. Around 16 disaster struck as she was visiting her close friend Michael, just smoothly cruising along the shoreline with her mother driving. A drunk driver swerves into them resulting in both of them in the ER. Mia got out alive but scarred as it a small diagonal scar on her upper right forehead stuck out, but her mother, unfortunately, passed away due to internal bleeding in the lungs. Devastated with the news, Mia tumbled into a state of depression for years. It was not until a few months after the accident that her father and Michael managed to coax her out of her depressed state. At 18 she had finally graduated and moved out with her best friend Michael. Both of them had gotten a Bachelor's degrees, Mia’s being in Journalism. Afterwards, they both dropped out of college to pursue their dreams. While Michael had been fortunate, Mia was not so lucky- while she had wanted to be a journalist, the local news station decided her to make her be their news reporter. Years passed and as Mia's 23rd birthday rolled around she finally quit her job at the news station and became a freelance journalist. Looking for and dirty scandals or dangerous news to report, her friend Michael invited her out to Chernarus for 3 months to document the rising tensions, while he was photographing the surrounding environment. And that's when it all started- her trip to Chernarus.
