Amanda was born near Detroit, Michigan and has since developed a passion for all Detroit sports. This passion has led her to the University of Michigan where she is now pursuing a degree in Sport Management. She is also currently a marketing intern for the U of M Athletic Department and the public relations chairman for her sorority, Sigma Kappa. This upcoming summer, Amanda will be traveling to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for a study abroad program focused on the culture of health, wellness, and sports in Rio. She is very excited to visit the future host city of both the World Cup and the Olympics and hopes to be able to attend these events in the future. Although growing up near Detroit has allowed her to develop into an all around sports fan, her favorite sports to watch are football and hockey.
