Amanda is a rising sophomore representing Space City, Houston, TX. She was born in New Orleans and spent some time in England growing up (definitely had an accent for a little while there). She is currently pursuing a Pre-Med track and is interested in studying Biology and Film for now, but is remaining open to just about anything! She involved in activities all over Barnard and Columbia as a WBAR radio host, a member of the Columbia University Marching Band, and Public Relations for the American Medical Women's Association at Morningside Heights. She was a lifeguard at the Barnard Pool as well as at a local pool in the summer. She loves hiking, going to the opera, and watching Netflix in bed and her current dream is to go skydiving, couch surfing and to become an Athena Scholar. She is super pumped about this year and looks forward to meeting the rest of Pyxis!
