To help them foster forgiveness, gratitude, kindness and loving compassion for themselves first. She does this with the hope to have them feel alive and present in this modern cyber social and academic world we live in; to have the courage to love anyone regardless of another persons race, creed, religion, sexual orientation or socio economic status.

Amanda’s motto: “Forgiveness and compassion to ourselves and others is the key to an abundance of love in our lives. Be humble, do kind things just because and have an open heart.”
