Hi! I am Amanda! I am currently a senior at Stephen F. Austin State University and majoring in marketing! I love playing sports, being active, and running around with kids.
Everywhere you look is inspiration and I want to be that inspiration that someone can follow. Since I was 5, I grew a great passion for dancing, singing, and acting. I show to younger kids that you can set your mind to be and do anything your heart desires. I then grew a happiness for making not only children, but adults smile and love the life they live. After graduating highschool in Tennessee in three years , I then followed my heart and moved to Dallas, Texas to pursue the fine arts and successfully graduated a KD Conservatory, Technical College for Film and Dramatic Arts, with my Associates in Musical Theatre. Now I plan to keep auditioning and following my big city dreams.
Bienvenidos a mi perfil!
Ever since I was a kid, I've enjoyed helping others, and later on during my middle school years I took up Spanish. I became invested into really learning as much as I could about the language. My goal is to fluidly explain even the most difficult concepts in the Spanish language to any age group. I've been there, and I know what it's like!
I started Spanish in the 8th grade and finished highschool taking IB Spanish 2 (Essentially 5th level Spanish), which is a total of 5 years of official learning, and at present 8 years of speaking. At Collin I took 2 basic Spanish classes, in which I was more of an assistant than a student. The professor of those classes told me I should tutor for the school and that I had to show my abilities to the Head of Spanish here are Collin College, Ana Giron. She gave me approval to tutor all levels of Spanish, which I have been doing there for 4 semesters, with another semester on the way. In addition to this I am always practicing by utilizing the internet to talk to Spanish speakers from all over the world as well as for daily refreshment.
When I was a kid, I used to spend hours in the Los Angeles Natural History museum, gazing up at that ancient Tyrannosaur looming over the lobby. Looking at its colossal body, I wondered how all of it came together to make this thing breathe and move. My imagination ran wild, and my fascination with the natural world flourished. Many different career paths presented themselves to me. Six year old Joe wanted to be a paleontologist, then a professor, then a chemist. Things gained focus, however, when I turned ten years old. My mother was diagnosed with Parkinson ’s disease, and suddenly “that funny shaky thing mom does when she’s holding a cold diet coke” didn’t make us laugh anymore.
I threw myself into human biology, turning grief into motivation. Entering college, I’d honed my passion to the medical field, but had no idea on which side I would fall: research or clinical. The only way to answer that was to do it, so as soon as I got on SMU’s campus I started asking around about laboratory research. When I read that Dr. Santosh D’Mello studied Neurodegeneration, I jumped on the opportunity. While the lab primarily studies Huntington’s disease, the basic mechanisms that regulate cell death may also help us understand the degeneration found in Parkinson’s. Over the last two years I’ve learned more than I could have possibly imagined. I earned research scholarships and worked through the summer, and although making minor discoveries has been satisfying, I could tell something was missing.
Freshman year of college, prior to getting involved with research, I volunteered with an organization called “Readers2Leaders” which tutors kids after school to bring them up to reading level. I remember spending time with a particular student named Louise, who absolutely hated the assigned readings. The first time we worked together he refused to do the reading, but I noticed he kept looking over to the bookshelf at a book on Dinosaurs. Throwing the rules out the window, I grabbed the book for him and he absolutely tore through the pages, absorbing everything he could. Seeing his little face light up as he read page after page was an extremely rewarding experience.
While I continue to be passionate about research, my heart lies more with helping students learn and grow as people. Nothing satisfies me more than teaching a subject I enjoy and watching the person across from me "get it," particularly if it's challenging.
