Malia Recker

Hello everyone! I’m Malia Recker, and I’m delighted to share a bit about myself with all of you. Born in Anqing, China, I was adopted at the age of 9 months and grew up in the beautiful landscapes of Grand Junction, Colorado. Currently, I’m finishing up my third year at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington, where I’m majoring in applied mathematics with a concentration in computer science, and minoring in women’s and gender studies. My journey with Adopteen started as a camper in 2019 and 2021, and last year I had the fantastic opportunity to serve on the committee. It was an enriching experience that profoundly impacted me, allowing me to forge countless connections.

When I’m not buried in homework, you can catch me hitting the slopes, scaling rocks, camping under the stars, or thrifting cool finds. I also enjoy spending quality time with friends and family and I’m a sucker for sour candy and popcorn! Serving on the camp committee last year was amazing, and I am thrilled about the prospect of bringing even more energy and fun to Colorado Springs! See you there!
