Amalia (pronounced like the movie Amelie with an "uh" on the end) was trained under the master herself, Maria Leone, and certified by Balanced Body. If she had a spirit animal, it would be a rescue dog - one that only had three legs, or one eye, or a bit of a weird thing going on with her ear (you know, when it doesn't quite stand up but doesn't quite lay flat either). Her hands and various limbs, along with her heartbeat, all lend to her natural and uncanny ability to be a human being. A DC native, her desire to sprinkle old bay on everything is strong, as is her itch to bring up Marion Barry in every social setting. Her strengths include crying when she feels feelings, not thinking before she speaks, growing red hair out of her head, and reaching the top shelf. Perpetual optimism and resilience are her attributes she's most proud of, along with her ability to rap along to Twista. At the end of the day, she just wants to leave people feeling the same way Shel Silverstein made her feel as a kid. Feel free to IMDb her, and then IMDb her again, she would really like to get her STARmeter up.
