After graduating from high school, Amanda enrolled at Florida State University and graduated in 2013. Even though Amanda was studying business during her University years, her goals were quite different. Speaking to Vogue, Amanda revealed,
“I wanted to be in the CIA. My mom has done Taekwondo her whole life. and has had some special jobs, so I was like, “That’s the coolest thing ever! I want to be like my mom.” That was my goal, but then I got some opportunities out in LA so I decided to stay in the entertainment space.”
