Amanda Dennis

Born in Atlanta Georgia, Amanda is a three-time Paralympian and two-time medalist in the unique sport of Goalball. After giving soccer a try at a young age, she found the sport at an adaptive sports education camp in Atlanta, which showcased many paralympic summer sports, Paralympians, and adaptations to mainstream sports for athletes who had a visual impairment. Amanda wore her first USA jersey in 2009 as she was selected for the U-19 Team USA that would compete for a world title followed by a selection to Team USA's London 2012 Paralympic Team at the young age of 18. Amanda Won her first World Championship medal in 2014 and shortly after collected Paralympic medals in 2016 (Bronze) and 2020 (Silver). She's still traveling and competing with Team USA, as her dream is to collect all three medal colors and represent Team USA on her home court in LA 2028. Outside of sports, Amanda has earned her bachelor of science in Sport management and most recently earned her Master's in Business Administration and would like to pursue a career in Sports Marketing.
