Ep. 24 - Amanda
"My name is Amanda. I was born and raised in Ireland and moved to New York 11 years ago with my abuser, where I first noticed he wasn’t the man I thought he was. Despite the terrible situation I was in, I fell in love with New York instantly and loved the freedom and anonymity it provided me, along with the joy of knowing there is never a boring day and always something to do.I’m an avid reader with a large book collection. I enjoy cooking and trying new restaurants with my friends. I love fashion and photography. Reality TV is my guilty pleasure. Being an auntie to my two nephews is the most joyous part of my life.I love podcasts, and two years ago, I decided to start my own podcast where I speak about my journey with domestic abuse (IPV and Me). I am a part of the Allstate Foundation Survivor Network, where I use my story to help spread awareness of DV (my goal in life). I can be found on social media @mandgoggs, where I post about my advocacy, books, fashion, and reality TV!"
