Early life[edit] Mraz was born and raised in Mechanicsville, Virginia.[5] He is of Czech and Slovak descent through his grandfather, who moved to the United States
United States
from Austria-Hungary
in 1915.[6] His surname is Czech for "frost".[6] (Czech: mráz) His parents, Tom (Tomáš) Mraz and June, divorced when he was five years old, but he maintains that he had an idyllic childhood, saying, "My hometown of Mechanicsville was very American. There were white picket fences, a church on every street corner, low crime and virtually no drug use. It was a good place to grow up."[7] After graduating from Lee-Davis High School, where he was a member of the cheerleading squad, Mraz attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy
American Musical and Dramatic Academy
in New York City for about a year and a half, before returning to Mechanicsville and taking on a series of odd jobs.[8] He then enrolled at Longwood University
