From a young age she knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the creative arts; growing up she filled her free time with things like art, music, and dance. Becoming a graphic designer has allowed her to mix her creative nature with her interest in critical thinking. Amanda enjoys problem solving and finding new and exciting design solutions that help to communicate in thoughtful and creative ways. In the summer of 2021 Amanda began interning with an entertainment network company where she most enjoyed working on UI design for their website. After graduating in the spring, she hopes to further her career as a designer working with others to create meaningful and impactful design that can promote positive change in our society.
