In the summer of 2013, when Mia Goth, then 17, was visiting her grandparents in Alberta, Canada, her mom asked her to take off her makeup.
Mia was terrified.
She was afraid her eyes would look like black holes, her skin would be a puddle and she would be in trouble.
“You can’t do that, it’s a big deal,” she told her mom.
But she was so convinced it would happen that she agreed.
A year later, when Goth was 14, she met a guy on the internet and they fell in love.
She told him she was 15, and they had a baby.
Theirs was a special day.
She wore her hair and makeup and took her shoes off.
She walked into her new family’s living room, put on her makeup, and stood before her mother.
You’re going to be the best mother I’ve ever had.” “
Then it hit me.
You’re going to be the best mother I’ve ever had.”
She was, she thought, going to do it.
Goth was an internet model and the face she had created online, which went viral, was an inspiration for her career and personal life.
Her new mother, who was working as a model, was a fan.
So Goth created a website for her new daughter called Mia Goth Face.
She posted her photos of herself and her new baby, and the internet exploded.
Goth began to be recognized as a woman and a model.
She began to gain fame, and she found work.
And then, in 2014, she was killed in a car crash in B.C., Canada, a shocking crime that made her the subject of a national news story and sparked a hashtag movement to raise awareness of the need for more women in the tech industry.
Goth’s mother had heard about Mia Goth’s death online, but she hadn’t seen the video until now.
“It was a shocking moment,” she said of her daughter’s death.
“Mia was my life.
And I was the one who made it all happen.”
Mia Goth is remembered as the face behind the #SaveMia hashtag that became a worldwide movement.
The hashtag was coined by Canadian teenager Amber Rose, whose online videos sparked an online movement to stop the death of young black women in prison.
The #SaveMoGoth hashtag has since been used by women of colour, transgender women and other marginalized communities, and has grown into a movement to bring more representation to the tech world.
“She was a woman in a lot of ways,” said Mia Goth herself.
“A lot of her work, she did with a lot more depth, a lot less makeup and more style.
And she was a feminist.”
Mia’s death was so shocking to the community that she was even featured in an article in the Toronto Star.
It sparked outrage and was the first time a black woman had been killed in the United States, said Emma Cope, a writer and activist for the Black Lives Matter movement.
“The Black Lives Movement is very much rooted in her work,” Cope said.
A month after her death, Mia Goth made her first appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
“We have an incredibly important story to tell,” Corden said to her.
“This is what happened to Mia Goth.”
Corden asked her if she thought she could make her mark on the world.
Goth told him, “Of course.”
Cordon asked Goth how she felt about the way the world was being shaped by her daughter.
“That’s my biggest struggle right now,” she responded.
“But I will not let that stop me from doing what I know I can do.”
It’s a struggle for her, but one she’s overcome.
She’s a model for the first-ever “Girlboss” campaign, a nonprofit that trains young women to make a difference in the workplace.
And Mia Goth was a role model for girls around the world who were inspired by her inspiring work and want to make the world a better place for their children, she says.
“If you want to see change, it is going to come from the inside out.
The people who can make a positive difference are the ones who are not in the spotlight,” she says of her role as a mother.
And, most importantly, she’s still a mother to a beautiful daughter.
Mia Goth has seen her daughter grow into a beautiful young woman, and is proud to share her story to raise the awareness of how women can achieve success in the world of technology.
“Women who make mistakes can learn from them and improve themselves.
We have to be accountable,” she tells The Late Night.
“And that’s not something you do overnight.
That’s something you build from within.”
