She even travelled to Africa to support communities, visit orphanages and schools and deliver donations of stationery and toys. This is a recognition for all of her charity work, campaigning, writing a book and being a role model for thousands of people thank you for every single person who voted for her you have no idea how much it would of meant to her to know she had won we just wish she had of been there to see it. While holidaying at the park in Abersoch in June this year, Ms Austin indicated to her mother and carer she wanted to eat a marshmallow.

The 30-year-old, from Bebington, Wirral, was only able to communicate by using a computer tracking her eye movements, and could swallow but only ate soft food, reports North Wales Live. The hearing in Caernarfon heard Mia had initially been fed on a liquid only diet before being able to eat soft foods.I feel like even before I got injured and when I was injured I was still learning from them," she said.

She continued to travel and undertook lots of charity work, including sleeping out on the streets of Liverpool to raise money and awareness of homelessness. It is obviously a very sad time for us, but we are so happy that she succeeded in her efforts and we wish Laura the very best of luck in role as co-Merseyside Woman of the Year. We can all take our memories of Mia into our future lives and be thankful for the short, but memorable time we each have spent with her. Mia was left with locked-in syndrome after a stroke at the age of 21, the day before she was due to go on a travel agent fam trip to the US. While it took Austin until Round 3 to impact the scoreboard, it has been nothing but impressive progress since, with her fourth two-goal effort of 2023 coming against Greater West Sydney in Round 8 and earning her an AFLW Rising Star nomination.The hearing was told Mia's carer offered to cut the sweet before placing it in her mouth but Mia shook her head to say "no". Her time as a Blue - although hampered by her injury - has been impactful for her forward counterparts as well, with Darcy Vescio speaking highly of Austin as a player, teammate and person. Mia was nominated for Merseyside Woman of the year 2019 and was announced the winner on Friday and this is a recognition for all of her charity work, campaigning, writing a book and being a role model for thousands of people thank you for every single person who voted for her you have no idea how much it would of meant to her to know she had won we just wish she had of been there to see it. In her words Mia has said, “I am excited about this”, “Becoming an Ambassador for A Stroke of Luck beats any achievement”.

Unfortunately, her maiden campaign stopped there due to a syndesmosis injury, but even that was enough of a sample size to show what Carlton fans can hope to see from Austin for years to come in the Navy Blue. Mia Austin, from the Wirral in Merseyside, was visiting a holiday park in north Wales when she tried to eat a marshmallow, an inquest in Caernarfon heard. Her story captured the admiration of the public when the shortlist was announced, winning the public vote and title of Woman of the Year with 2,451 votes, the largest number of votes for one finalist in the event’s 16-year history. At the start, I didn’t really know how to handle it but I feel like now I am taking it on as a challenge and just trusting what I’ve worked on,” Austin said. aking a strong contested mark inside the opening minutes of the season opener, Austin calmly slotted her first goal on debut against Collingwood, backing it up with a major against Essendon the next week.
