Amanda was born and raised on Long Island, New York. She is a recent graduate from Hofstra University where she studied Early Childhood/Childhood Education and Spanish. During her time at Hofstra she was involved in Newman Club and Catholic Campus Ministry and served as the President of Newman Club in her senior year. In her sophomore year of college she went on a short-term mission with FMC to General Cepeda, Mexico and the Lord has been calling her to serve as a missionary ever since. She was a bit hesitant to answer this call at first, but after attending “Come & See” in March 2017, she undoubtedly knew the Lord was calling her to serve the poor with all her heart. She is excited to answer His call and spread the Gospel with FMC.
