Just before summer vacation she donated "Horse Running" to Our Promise to Nicholas Foundation, NH to a fundraiser to help raise money for Nicholas who has Battens Disease. In the summer of 2011 she donated her water color "Home" to Crossing Cultures” a program that helps Students in America to travel to Senegal and immerse them in the Senegalese culture. The painting was given as a thank you gift to all those who helped raise money for 'Bouley', a Senegalese young man who needed help to return to school to help his family. She would like to attend college for Graphic Arts focusing on comic books and inking. She wants to do "big things with her art" as well as to give back to those in need. Recently she designed an iPad presentation titled, “Do You know Who I Am?” to combat bullying. The presentation can be viewed on her website below. She is also creating two Manga series and is busy developing characters for them daily. Amaranthia's work is influenced by earlier years spent in Tokyo, Japan. One day she hopes to create a foundation so young artist like herself can have their work shown. She wants people to focus on her artistic abilities and not her age.
