About the author

C'est moi. C'est moi.
Explaining yourself to people is tricky.

I'm Amanda. I'm an ambitious, creative, stubborn perfectionst in my fourth year majoring in Computer Science at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I'm a student, daughter, sister, writer, web designer, violinist, art journalist, scrapbooker, and programmer.

I get stressed out easily.
I'm cynical, but I have a lot of faith in people.
I have a weakness for all things vintage.
I like surprising people.

I love projects. I especially love projects that involve telling stories, documenting things, incorporating visual stuff, and programming.

I'm just trying to find myself and build the life I've always dreamed of.

Welcome to my favorite story.
