Mia Weathers-Fowler is one of the most wonderful and tip-spirited humans to ever grace a TiP campus. She attended Duke East Term 2 her second, third, and fourth years. She has been undefeated in her three years of Quadfest interpretative dancing, and plans to continue her int. dance career. She hopes to interpret bigger and better things for bigger (but not better) audiences. Most notably, she was the Llama Mama in 2014 and passed it on to Colin Bronack. Her fourth year she was a half-bro, guided by Erica Mast, and also a firm follower of Ercanomics.

Llama Mama

Mia was the 2014 Llama Mama after being chosen by former Llama Mama Ellison Hersch. She was, of course, a lovely Llama Mama (and a total BAMF). The Llama was stolen during the RCs' Tipsync routine and was held in Mia's RC Hannah's room for a week (though Mia did get Hannah baby wipes and/or Lysol to make sure she stayed clean and beautiful). The staff put out a Bora the Explorer video, and the Llama was later reclaimed on the Lilly steps after getting as many Tipsters as possible to yell "Swiper, no swiping!" at RLC Sean and RC Shawn. At the end of term, Mia chose Colin Bronack as the next Llama Mama.

TipSync and Talent Show

2013 As a 3rd year for TipSync, Mia was part of the Ice Ice Babies, along with Hunter Wolff, Erica mast, Alex Obiol, Riley Knight, and Bethany Brownrigg. The group performed a very short routine to (you guessed it) Ice Ice Baby by Vanilla Ice, dressed as ballerinas. They did not place but looked hella fine, anyway. For the Talent Show, Mia did a dance with Alex Obiol and Nicole Googe to the song Black and Gold

2014 Mia participated in both TipSync and the talent show again as a fourth year. She and the former Ice Ice Babies reformed as the Street Six to perform "Everbody (Backstreet's Back)" by the Backstreet Boys, all six girls dressed like dudes in cargo shorts, snapbacks, and thrift shop windbreakers (provided by LJ). The group surprised the audience and especially the competing 4th year group, Miss Toxic and the Carbon Monoxides, with matching, glittery bro tanks emblazoned with 'Hotter Mess' in reference to the aforementioned boys' 'Hot Mess' tanks from their winning act the previous year. The 2014 East ll TipSync ended with some controversial results. The judges proclaimed Miss Toxic and the Carbon Monoxides as the official first place winners, but an unknown RC/Tipster started chanting "dance off," leading to... a dance off. The Street Six decidedly won the dance off, but since it was not a dance off requested by the judges, Miss Toxic kept the title. Besides, many Tipsters as well as some RCs and TAs agreed that the Street Six's routine was superior. But hey, who can beat guys in booty shorts. For the talent show, Mia and Alex Obiol choreographed and performed a "dance to end racism" to the song "Stand By Me." Some last minute choreography was done at dinner, and their dance ended with Alex jumping on Mia for a big hug (or the other way around, I don't remember).
