Special Olympics has changed Amanda’s life in many ways. Amanda feels that through participating in Special Olympics she has become more confident in herself and she is not afraid to try new things. She explained that she has always been afraid to talk to people she did not know because her speech is not always easy to understand, but she continued to persevere and even became a Global Messenger for Special Olympics.
Amanda will represent Team New Hampshire at the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games in Seattle, Washington as a part of the swimming team. This will be her first time competing at an USA Games, but she did compete at the 2009 World Winter Games in Boise, Idaho. What is she most excited for at the USA Games? The answer is quite simple. To win a gold medal!
