Mia Nitekman is one of those people that you quickly get the feeling can be or do anything that interests her. The Huntington High School senior is so smart and talented that no career field is out of reach. The teenager will be headed to the University of Pittsburgh in the fall to pursue her dreams.
“Being an urban campus, the University of Pittsburgh offers a wide range of academic opportunities and ways to customize my degree, all of which I’m excited to take part in,” Ms. Nitekman said. “The school spirit, kind people and lively city bring Pitt to life.”

The senior weighed the pros and cons of Northeastern University, George Washington University and Pitt after narrowing her list of potential colleges to three. “Each of those schools were amazing and competitive, but Pitt prevailed for sure,” Ms. Nitekman said.
The teenager plans to study politics and philosophy and she is considering pursuing a minor in either economics or computer science. “I plan to become involved with the Pathfinders, a political action group and probably an a capella group as well,” Ms. Nitekman said. “I also want to volunteer at the city hospital.”
A dynamic young woman, Ms. Nitekman is on Huntington High School’s High Honor Roll. She has participated in the Model UN program and Interact Club, interned in an Advanced Placement United States History classroom and been inducted into the National Honor Society. She is politically knowledgeable and active.
“Working for a White House administration would be a dream job; something along the lines of political or legal advisor or even speech writing,” said Ms. Nitekman about her career interests. “I’m contemplating law school following my undergrad.”
An articulate young woman with sharp intelligence, Ms. Nitekman is a caring and considerate person who is known for her loyalty and willingness to help anyone in need.
“I’ll remember the relationships I’ve made with friends and teachers that drive me to be the best version of myself,” Ms. Nitekman said. “These are people I know will be a part of my life for a very long time and I'm so lucky for that.”
