Amal is currently counting down her days left as a high school senior in the DC area. She works at the Library of Congress and is a program assistant intern at the National Center for Victims of Crime. Though Amal spends most of her time slowly wasting away on the metro during her daily commutes, she can also be found going to concerts, writing, hiking, reading, and making art. Despite the fact that she’s never been there, Amal has an inexplicable fascination with Michigan’s upper peninsula, and has five maps of it on her bedroom wall.
