The next time you find yourself pumping your first to some innovative beats at a club, don't be surprised if they come courtesy of Amanda, who learned the art of mixing at Scratch Academy in New York City. "I want to win an award as a DJ and as a producer," she says, "but mainly I want to create an empire and a way of life that encourages happiness." And how does Amanda stay focused and content when she's not blasting the bass? "I'm a firm believer in balance, and making time for fitness, health and relaxation. I look forward to working out daily because it helps me feel and be my best."
