Hi! My name is Amara Maw. Both natural and social sciences interest me greatly, especially psychology and human anatomy and physiology. I am a Girl Scout currently working on my Gold Award Project, in which I aim to reduce the stigma surrounding eating disorders through storytelling. It is a project that I am scared to put into action due to the sensitivity of the topic I chose, but it is an issue I deeply care about and want to address especially due to my past struggles. As for my free time, it is usually spent at the field practicing soccer. If I am not practicing soccer, then you can find me tearing my hair out in frustration while practicing my French horn, an instrument that I love for its beautiful yet difficult nature. That, or you can find my painting or writing poems to express my thoughts and feelings.
