Hey guys! This is “Muses and Queens” yet again! Autumn is already here! Summer flew by so fast. This month we have Amanda, from Upper Marlboro. We had an awesome time at our photo shoot! Let’s get to know a bit about her!
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Cotton Candy mixed with Vanilla.
Who would you like to live like for a day?
What Celebrity do you most relate to, and why?
Tina Fey. She is just hysterical, headstrong, and extremely talented. She is not afraid to speak her mind, but carries herself with grace and poise. Not to mention, she’s got a great sense of humor. I love to laugh more than anything, so I try to express comic relief at any given opportunity.
If you had advice to give to the next generation, what would it be?
Love Yourself. We live in a world of social media, the times have changed. As a culture, only a few can really remember what it was like prior to the legendary days of the internet. This world might seem cold, but it’s the people’s perspective of themselves. I let negative energy consume my daily thoughts and actions, but I learned to love myself before I could love anyone else.
What would be your spirit animal and why?
Normally, I would say something funny like a sloth. However, sloths are typically known for being slow and steady. I think my spirit animal would have to be a panda, because they are cute but seem rather deadly. I’d like to be thought of in that capacity, and it rhymes with Amanda.
What career aspirations do/did you have? What made you interested in this career?
I am a clerk for the Circuit Court, but my real fancy is politics. I aspire to be a writer, and
my major in college was journalism with a minor in history. My true love is to become a writer on the Hill. “There is nothing more important than a well-informed electorate.” I genuinely believe that we, as constituents, can not only represent our country in a democracy, but more importantly we have the responsibility and overall obligation to display and distribute accurate and current news to the people around us.
Would you rather win an Olympic medal, an Academy Award or the Nobel Peace prize? Why?
The Nobel Peace Prize. I would rather be honored for a service either to my country, or even on a global scale, rather than awarded based on my overall talent. Sometimes, talent consumes people. We need to think outside of the box, through more selfless acts.
As always, we’d like to thank Amanda for being a part of this month’s feature! It was a pleasure for sure! Follow her instagram here. Thanks for reading this month’s issue! Until next time, cheers!
