SO... WHO IS SHE?
I’m Amanda! A recent grad of Arizona State University receiving a B.S.D. in Visual Communication (Graphic) Design, a minor in Asian Pacific American Studies, and a certificate in Sales and Marketing. I was also president of AIGA ASU and a sister of Alpha Phi Gamma, a national Asian-interest sorority.
I’m an Asian American woman.Obvious? Maybe. I am a proud Filipina. The stories of my family inspire me, since their hard work allows me the privilege to whole-heartedly pursue design. They fuel me to be a voice for other Asian Americans.
I’m a nerd.
No shame, I WILL be the person to point out awkward alignment on a menu. Or stress looking at how type is scaled on a fire extinguisher sign. My education and appreciation for design has made me fall in love with the world. I’m cheesy but so passionate about what I do.
In 2016, I was in Flume’s top 5% of listeners based on Spotify and got a free signed poster.
I was in Girl Scouts for 13 years during which I sold 1200+ boxes of cookies for two consecutive years, received the three highest awards, and traveled to Costa Rica to volunteer.
I have never seen Mean Girls. Or Titanic. Or She’s The Man. As well as many other classics that I would rather not name in case that prevents you from hiring me.
