Amanda Ellis just graduated from Carver Center for Arts and Technology. But before launching her dancing career at Chapman University in California, she wants to compete.
Amanda will be among 50 ladies in the Distinguished Young Women of America program later this month in Mobile, Alabama.
The daughter to Debbie and Dave Ellis, she says she is concentrating on her dance performance, her wardrobe and her hair.
When she wins she will come home with a big chunk of college paid for, but the work she has put in has been tremendous.
