Amanda Roth is from Concord, North Carolina. She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and Minor in Chemistry. After graduation, she worked as a Crisis Response Assistant at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center and worked with people with disabilities through The Arc of the Triangle. During her junior year of college, she traveled to Panama to work in a medical clinic where a young girl with Treacher Collins syndrome arrived for healthcare. Since this experience, Amanda has had a strong research interest in rare genetic disorders and hopes to work in a specialty clinic after graduation.
Why she chose Rutgers:
I chose to attend Rutgers University because of the opportunities for leadership and ability to help shape a new program. I am also excited to explore New Jersey and the surrounding areas!
