I took Amanda's senior photos last year. She is now in college and I asked her to write a little article about how she is doing now. Sounds like she is becoming a wonderful young adult! Below is the article she wrote for me accompanied by some of her senior photos.

My name is Amanda, and I am a freshman at the University of North Texas in Denton. Choosing UNT was one of the best decisions I could have made for many reasons. UNT has an excellent Journalism program, which happens to be my major; UNT also has the best music program in the nation, which happens to be my minor. My interest in Journalism, specifically Broadcast, flourishes from my love of acting. I have always loved to sing, so this combination is perfect for me. Another reason why I am so thrilled that I chose UNT is the fact that I have made so many friends and grown tremendously in my Catholic faith at the Catholic Center designed for UNT and TWU(Texas Woman’s University) students. If I didn’t step through the doors at the Catholic Center, I wouldn’t have made even half of the amazing friends I have made. If I never went to the Catholic Center, I never would have gone on the Awakening Retreat, which helped me form a stronger relationship with God. I never would have met our wonderful FOCUS(Fellowship of Catholic University Students) missionaries who encouraged me to go to the SEEK Conference, where my love for my faith was enhanced even more and where my drive to spread the Gospel was dramatically increased. Not only was UNT a great choice for me academically, it was a great choice for me spiritually. After I graduate, I hope to go on to grad school and eventually pursue a career in Journalism, whether it be print, radio, or broadcast. I also aspire to use my talents as a singer to glorify God. All I can say is that I am extremely blessed. I have been blessed with God’s love, amazing family and friends, a wonderful university to attend, a sweet little dog, little pleasures in life, and life in general. I am loving my life and I can’t wait to see what plans God has for me in the future.
