Amanda Ezechi, SSC Vice-Chair

College of Arts and Science

Amanda Ezechi is the School Senator for the College of Arts and Science, a senior studying Journalism and Politics, minoring in Business of Entertainment Media and Technology.

She hopes to have a career involving both legislation and documentary-making. When she's not studying or running around campus, you could find her gallivanting around Brooklyn with a tripod and camera or online catching up on the 2016 Presidential Election campaign trails. If none of the above, then she's walking around the village singing louder than she should be or dancing to the music that's playing only in her head.
