Hello and Thank you

My name is Amanda and I am current Social Work student at Skidmore College and will be apart of the graduating class of 2021. I was born and raised in New York City to a very small family in a large community. In 2016, I had the opportunity of working in an arts based educational organization called Kid’s Creative, which was the beginning of my work within the educational field. I have had a long passion for social justice and educational justice since becoming an arts educator. With everything that I do, my main goal and focus with every person and every situation, I always want to lead with LOVE. My life has been shaped by trials and victories in every form. There is a reason for why I want to make change within my community, as well as other communities. Knowing that the lived experience of many students are not the same, the one thing that can be consistent is the quality of education in which our students are receiving as well as the education we teach.
