Amanda is a pink enthusiast, fashion lover, and gymnastics fanatic, so she’s basically Nastia Liukin―minus the athletic ability.
Pink has always been her favorite color, though she doesn’t know why. Perhaps it’s because she was often dressed in the hue as a baby and toddler and just ended up really liking the color as she got older. Regardless, it’s come to be a trademark, Amanda’s signature color. A single day doesn’t pass without her wearing it. It’s one of the easiest ways to tell her and Ashley apart, and it’s become a great color to represent her more “girly” interests.
Shopping is how Amanda spent her childhood, so it should come to no surprise that she became a fashion lover. Her childhood memories consist of trips to the mall, TJ Maxx, and Marshalls with her mom nearly every weekend. So she learned to adore clothes and putting outfits together. At one point, she even dreamed of being a fashion designer. Now her Instagram is full of #OOTD posts and is a personal stylist for any friend who comes to her.
Although she’s a gymnastics fanatic, she has never taken a gymnastics class in her life, but her love for the sport has caused her to be mistaken for a gymnast too many times to count. After watching gymnastics for the first time during the 2008 Olympics, she sporadically watched the sport when she could find it on TV. After hearing about 2008 Olympians Shawn Johnson and Nastia Liukin making a comeback for the 2012 Olympics, she began following the sport consistently and fell in love with it.
Amanda’s other distinct interests include dance, action sports, braiding hair, and anything involving Taron Egerton.
