Miss A Columnist

Amanda Pelletieris a native of Boston, who has always had lofty dreams of saving the world with a cape and a nice tiara, but until then she continues to pursue degrees in theatre and public relations at American University. Amanda has been inspired by the arts since her grandmother introduced her to Bizet’s Carmen at five-years-old. She received her training from Boston-based acting coach Debra Crosby and the world famous Stagedoor Manor in NY. When not glued to her Blackberry or running out the door to her internships, Amanda enjoys frequenting local museums, going to the opera, ballet, poetry readings, and the theatre. Amanda believes that high art should be accessible to everyone and she will cover events that even broke college students such as herself can attend.
