Amanda has faith in the neighborhood revitalization of her hometown New Bedford, MA. She fundraises for historic preservation when she's not studying urban planning at UMASS Boston. Before this life, she really thought she would be a professor of monstrosity, Latinx themes in sci-fi and blues poetry. That's why she's here.
You see, Amanda has had an affair with all the dead white men of great literature, but she left them all for Junot Diaz.
