 budding flower       Hello! My name is Amanda Drazdowski, and I'm a student at Valdosta State University. I am seeking my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood and Reading Education. I transferred to VSU from Berry College in Rome, Georgia after three semesters. I plan to complete my studies form VSU in December of  2005. I hope to one day be a teacher in a fourth grade classroom in the state of Georgia.

                I was born in Moultrie, Georgia. I lived there for thirteen year in a small house with my family. As my brother and I grew the house seemed to shrink, so we moved to Valdosta were I currently live. My parents were both school teachers which enabled my family to travel during the summers. I saw many beautiful places but my favorite was Grand Canyon National Park. I will never be able to describe the inspiring view of the sun raising over the rocks.  Unfortunately I have not been able to do much over seas traveling in my life.  One place that I have always desired to visit is Australia.  I do not know much about it, but I have heard that it is breath takingly beautiful.

   caterpiller to butterfly Some of my spare time is spent at Christ Episcopal Church. I lead a youth group which consist of fourth and fifth graders form various schools around the county.  My group is always able to make me laugh while we learn about God and the great things he has in store for our lives. When I'm not at church you can find me at the Valdosta State Wesley Foundation were I lead a bible study for college students.  The Wesley gives me a place to relax with friends and unwind between classes.
