Introduce Yourself: Hey. My name is Amanda. I was born and raised in New York.
Thoughts On People In The World?: Honestly, I can’t judge everyone the same way because everyone is different. All i know is that the world isnt just black and white. Everyone has a story.
What are your inspirations & goals?: Someone who used to inspire me was my ex because even though he had a lot of stuff going on, he kept his head high. Someone else that inspires me is my god sister because she had a really rough life and lost her mom at a young age, but she still tries to be as successful as possible. One goal I have is to graduate high school then get into Brooklyn College. I want to be an archery instructor when I’m older, since thats something I love.
How would you impact the world?: I don’t know yet. Im still trying to figure myself out, so I havent thought about it.
Struggles In Life? : I’ve had a few struggles. One of them was losing my good mother when I was in 6th grade. It was hard because that was the 1st death i experienced and I felt like I shouldve been there for her more. Another one I’ve had is just struggling to be happy in general because I’m struggling in school right now and i dont really get along with my family.
How do you feel about yourself? Any changes you would make? : Im not happy with the person i am. I dont like myself and I want to change. Personality wise, I can be empathetic, but i also need to learn how to focus on myself instead of focusing on other peoples problems to distract me from mine.
What does love mean to you?: Love means you accept someone, no matter their flaws or challenges. You’re there for them through thick and thin because you actually care about them. Love can be a very complicated thing, but its worth it.
