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.”
Before moving to LA and started working on the entertainment industry, Amanda was invited by the Playboy Magazine to star in the centerfold. She flew to California to finish the photo shoot and jetted to LA and was also declared as the Playboy Playmate for the Month of October 2011.

Talking about her love for comedy, Amanda revealed,
“You have to stick with what you enjoy and what you’re good at. So me doing beauty vlogs all the time, I would feel fake doing it because that’s not me. With comedy, I was always surrounded by comedians and joking around. And I loved writing. Writing skits and sketches and stuff.”
