Amanda's Story

Amanda wanted to do something to help, but she didn’t know where to focus her energy until she participated in the Baltimore Collegetown LeaderShape program.

Now, Amanda is dedicated to her vision to inform, educate, and move people to action. She filmed a mini documentary, “My Generation Will Be Free,” about human trafficking globally and domestically. She wrote a play, “The Samaritan Project,” a collection of monologues and scenes showcasing victims, survivors, perpetrators and activists. And, through funding from PNC Collegetown LeaderShape grant, she hosted a rally at UB where "The Samaritan Project" was performed to spread awareness about human trafficking.

Amanda’s vision and desire to help, led to an internship and later a job with The Samaritan Women. Her position allows her to partner with organizations and businesses in Baltimore to provide jobs and security for women who are in need.
