Full Name: Amanda Rose  

Hometown: Atlanta, GA

Class Year: Junior

Major: I’m transferring to Augusta University to complete a Bachelor of Science program in dental hygiene.

How would you describe yourself to someone who does not know you? I’m passionate, caring and creative. I enjoy learning. When I have a goal in mind, I work diligently to achieve it. I care deeply about others and especially adore animals. Although I’m quiet, I love to laugh and have fun!

If you could start college all over again, what would you do differently? I wouldn’t rush into choosing a major. As a freshman, I wasn’t fully aware of what I wanted to do. As a result of changing my major, my expected graduation was delayed by a year. 

What is your favorite childhood memory? Driving to Pittsburgh every winter break was an extremely special time. The annual trip was a great opportunity for me to bond with my extended family. It allowed me really get to know my cousins and grandparents. Plus, I was able to play in the snow, eat great food, go to special parks, and watch Penguins hockey. On the drive back to Atlanta, my family always stopped at the same hotel where we celebrated New Year’s Eve with fireworks, my dad’s homemade chocolate pretzel, and sparkling drinks.

 If you’re not studying or on campus, what are you doing? I’m likely teaching cooking classes at Young Chef’s Academy, exercising, taking pictures, or hanging out with friends and family.

Can you tell us your dream job? I would love to be a dental hygienist and inspire people to share healthy, confident smiles. I also wish to continue to grow my social media and become an influencer. Creating looks with special effects makeup is a hobby, and I’d love to turn this skill into a side job.

Where is your favorite place that you have traveled to, and why? I’d narrow it down to Amsterdam or Canada. I love both places equally because everyone seemed super friendly. Both areas are beautiful and have great weather. Amsterdam has a lot of important Jewish history, including the Anne Frank House. As a bonus, it is easy to find foods cooked with fresh ingredients in both areas. 

What has been your favorite event with Chabad this year? I really enjoyed Sinai Scholars because I was able to become closer to the rabbi and his wife. The program allowed me to form connections to other Jewish people at Kennesaw. Of course, I also learned a lot.

What is one of your favorite Jewish traditions or holidays? I really enjoy Passover because friends and family come from out of town to celebrate the holiday with us!

Why would you encourage Jewish students to get involved with Chabad? Initially, I was intimidated to come to Chabad events, but I’m really glad that I gave it a try. I’ve met so many nice people. The events are creative, and learning is fun.

Favorite Jewish Food? Bagels and lox!
