My name is Amanda and I am a Junior Marketing major Psychology minor at UMass Amherst. I am in the Isenberg School of Management as well as the Commonwealth Honors College. I am a very involved member of the campus community, specifically seen through my role as Head of Community Service for the Isenberg Marketing Club.
As much as I love being in the Amherst area, Boston is truly my home. I grew up 20 minutes south of the city in a town called Weymouth. Growing up, I was able to witness all four of the major sport teams win league championships, some winning more than once. I was able to witness my city come together in times of crisis, as seen with the Boston Marathon bombings. Although we've had our ups and downs, Boston has been able to stand strong through it all. I could have never imagined growing up anywhere else; Boston will forever be my home.
