1. Whatinspired you to get into the industry?
Answer: When Iwas in Jr College, I worked as an Anaheim Ducks Ice Girl (kind
of like a cheerleader except on hockey skates) lol. A couple of the other girls
on my team were also models. I submitted to an agency M International, met with
them and they signed me! The whole process was really exciting for me!
The experiences I’ve had, other career opportunities and the people I’ve
met through modeling have shaped who I am today. J

5. What are youmost proud of?
Answer: Wow,well I started a social media marketing company called Upwardly
Social LLC in Jan 2012 My business is starting to really take off!! I burst into
tears afterI got my first client’s paycheck! I have 3 employees now and we’re
growing incredibly fast! All of my careers in the past I have used my appearance
as leverage. I am a smart young entrepreneur and it feels so good to have
a booming career that is successful because of my BRAIN.

7. When it’sall said and done, what do you want to be
Answer: I would like to be remembered as a hard working successful
entrepreneur who inspires other young women to embark on their own
entrepreneurial endeavors. Eventually when I have a family I want to be
remembered as a loving mother, wife, andfriend.
Answer: When I’m not nerding out of either one of my phones, tablet, or
laptop…. I’m truly passionate about snow skiing! Growing up my dad would take my
siblings and I to Whistler, BC Canada and I fell in love with the town, sport,
and vibe that you feel in a ski town. I love the cold crisp air. Another hobby
would be that I love going to any kind of sporting events. I was a cheerleader
all through school and my first year in college, so I’ve always loved the thrill
of close games and the dedication it takes to WIN. The NHL is my favorite league
(Go Ducks andKings). I took my dad to the Kings' game 6 for an early
Father’s Day Gift.
"AND THE KINGS WON! AMANDA MUST HAVE BEEN THEIR GOOD LUCK CHARM."
