Fia Carlone, a 17 year old junior in the Arts and Humanities Academy at Berkeley High school was born and raised in Berkeley, CA. Fia first became a champion of community causes through her involvement in the Girl Scouts, earning a bronze award through the development of a community garden and achieving Silver Award status by constructing little libraries, installing them in the neighborhood of her upbringing. Later, Fia would become a counselor with the Mosaic Project, which teaches young adults how to become peacemakers in their community uniting amongst diverse backgrounds. In addition to these activities, Fia volunteers annually at Camp Imua which serves differently abled children, encouraging youth of all capabilities to share a unique recreational experience in an inclusive judgment-free environment. These early life experiences sparked Fia’s interest in the intersection between social justice and art— she uses her creativity to amplify her voice and aid her in making this world a better place for all humans.
