My name is Amanda, and I am currently a lawyer in Toronto. During undergrad, I was a politics major and history minor at Queen's University. While attending law school, and was fortunate to go on exchange for a year to Australia. In Australia, I participated in a surf competition, became a flood relief volunteer and played on the varsity soccer team, among other activities. Currently in my spare time, I enjoy playing sports, travelling and I am currently reading "Hard Choices" by Hillary Clinton.
I've had experiences in the sports industry, though few in sport and development. However,
it has been a long-standing interest of mine. I have written several papers on sport and development from political, historical and legal perspectives. I ran a sports conference in my final year, and one panel discussed economic development for host countries of the Olympic Games. I have also co-authored a chapter in a textbook on international law and sport with Norm O'Reilly and Richard Pound.
