Meet Mia Nelson, 2012 Danish Days Maid
The 16-year-old, who has lived in Solvang her entire life, is the daughter of Conny Nelson and the late Steve Nelson. She has four older siblings — three brothers and one sister.
Mia said she has dreamed of being the Danish Maid since she was a little girl and considers it an honor and a privilege to represent Solvang as the 2012 Danish Maid.
Each year a new maid is selected to represent Danish Days. She can be seen riding on the floats, making aebelskiver each morning, and spreading good will to the thousands of visitors that come to Solvang for this festive occasion.
