Raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, with a vast uphill forest and trails right in the backyard, Amelia always had passion for the outdoors. Since she was a teenager, she's traveled solo to 37 states and this summer is actually her second time venturing in Alaska but it’s her first time in Southeast! She's currently a senior majoring in Visual Media at Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.
As an intern for SCS this summer, she will be advocating sustainability in the outdoor by utilizing digital media in creative ways. Often when relaxing, you can find her either wandering to somewhere or in the hammock with her wonderful hearing assistance dog, Ava.
