From the moment she walks on stage until the moment she walks off the stage, she has your full and complete attention. She is loud and she has energy. (Tyler Reed, high school senior)

Amanda is the only motivational speaker that I have ever seen that was REAL…not some fake stage persona. What’s not to love about that? She made me realize that the stuff I think is the end of the world really isn’t. There are more amazing things to come!! (Blake Dylan, ASCA)


Have you ever sat through a speaker that was really boring? Well, Amanda is definitely NOT boring! She is funny and real, but she gets down to the nitty-gritty real-life stuff that these kids need to hear. Our students talked about her constantly for about a week after hearing her speak. They even made the media specialist order a copy of her book for the school library. I can’t think of another time in my entire education career where the students demanded to get a specific book in the library. (Marcus Black, Administrator Westside High School)


Amanda’s story is so real and it made me think about my future. She is an inspiration to me because she is FEARLESS! I hope that I can be just like her when I’m older and not be afraid to move on from my mistakes and make the best of my situation regardless. Amanda is the most dauntless person I have ever met. THANK YOU! (Sara Knighton, GA HOBY)
