Amanda Vargas (Staff Photo)

Amanda Vargas grew up on a military base in North Carolina, but her roots go back to Baumholder, Germany and upstate New York. She is a recent graduate of Miami international University of Art Design (2014), where she majored in Photography.

At Miami International, Amanda immersed herself in studio classes and portfolio critiques to create a number of photography series, such as The Painted and As You See Me. Notably, As You See Me was featured at MAPS Production House during Art Basel 2014. Working at the Center will expose her to lectures by prominent professors and their perspectives on social change.
