ABI Profile: Amanda


is studying at Columbia University in New York.

This summer, she interned with the artist Aura Rosenberg.

"I really enjoyed getting to know Aura Rosenberg, who is an artist with a lot more experience, and just getting an intimate view of how another artist works. The main thing I took away was how to take more into consideration the process and thoughtfulness behind an artistic project."

"I formed a good relationship with Aura, and I can see her being a good connection and friend in the future. From working together all summer, I feel like she also got the sense that I had a deep understanding of her work and way of creation."

"The way ABI helped the most was connecting me to the artist and taking care of the visa and other logistics. Making it easy to find the opportunity was what made everything possible in the first place."
