Hello! My name is Amanda Harwood and I am finishing up my time at Iowa as a senior Theatre Major, International Relations Minor, and am obtaining a certificate in Performing Arts Entrepreneurship. I look forward to blending my interests in theatre as well as business to work in an arts administration field upon graduating.

In addition to working for Hancher, the Honors Department as a Student Programmer, and Assistant to the Director of Theatre here on campus, one of my most notable involvements with Honors at Iowa was my experience doing ICRU research this past summer by building a stage management database with one of my theatre professors, Melissa Turner.

When I have free time, I love to read biographies of famous actors and comedians, watch documentaries about social justice on Netflix, explore the bike trails, or wind down by practicing yoga. 

With my interest in politics and social movements, I look forward to programming exciting events and speakers with the Iowa City Foreign Relations Council Team this upcoming year.
