Amanda is 28 and was born with Spina Bifida. Surgery resulted in incomplete spinal cord injury. While working full time as a Dental Assistant, Amanda sought to pursue a profession that was more rewarding. She applied for the Kevin Duke Scholarship to support her tertiary education. With a passion for nature, animals and helping others, Amanda has enrolled in Photography.

"Although I have some physical limitations, I believe these challenges will give me further purpose and motivation to help others. I have decided to chase my dream and enrol to study Photography. I am so grateful for this opportunity. PQSA has made a huge impact on my future plans!”
