Hello world, I am Amanda Chew. 

I like to watch and smell the earth in the beginnings of a storm, I like to dance barefooted in the ground. 

I am a rising junior, pursuing Math-Computer Science Sc.B at Brown. I am passionate in the intersection of the fields Women, Technology, Social Change. I believe in education and technology in empowering silent minorities (eg women, youths) with a voice.

I am in Nairobi, Kenya this summer 2012 to teach 3D Animation (my work) to youths in the slums of Kenya. I am from the sunny land of Singapore.
