I’m having a real hard time trying to come up with a fun and cool way to start this post without just saying, like, “Hi! I’m Amanda,” so, instead of being witty and interesting:
I’m a multimedia major here at LCC. Last year, I was a film major, so I’ve already taken a few classes further along the first-year course, but I changed my mind and looped back around to give media arts a shot.
For my entire life, I’ve fancied myself an artist and a storyteller. I’ve bounced back and forth between wanting to be an author, a musician, a film director, a comic book artist, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera… But, seriously, no matter what, I’ve got stories to tell, and I’m gonna tell them. That’s why I think media arts will be a good place for me! My dream right now is to found a multimedia production company and have a place for my friends and me to work on projects together, but I’m sure I’ll be on something else in a couple of weeks.
Outside of college, I’m a big podcast nerd and a HUGE cat person. I like to sit in my room and listen to audio dramas and cuddle with my most beloved, sweetest, whiniest, babiest kitty cat, Snickers. I also draw all sorts of stuff and I’m (slowly) learning to play the piano!!
OH, OH, ALSO: I feel like it’s probably worth mentioning that I primarily use they/them pronouns! (“Amanda is an artist. They like to draw and their art is pretty good sometimes. Please be kind to them and give them lots of chocolate.”) She/her pronouns don’t bother me too much if that’s hard to remember, but it’d mean a lot to me if you’d use they/them instead!
