Amanda Greer

Star

Amanda is a third-year student at the University of Toronto, double majoring in Cinema Studies and English Literature. She often prays to the heavens for marketable skills to balance out this decision.
From an early age, Amanda seemed to be on the cutting edge of writing. Her earliest work, How the Snake Lost Its Legs, circa 5th grade, was banned from the classroom for excessive violence and snake attacks.

She has dealt with censorship her entire life.

Amanda can be found wondering the streets of Toronto while practicing her catchphrase, I'm sorry, I didn't realize I offended you.
She might also be found playing the piano in the midst of a creative block, since that's kind of what Sherlock Holmes did.

Recently taken on as an intern at TrendHunter, Amanda would like to thank the cast of The Avengers, in all their humble, god-like good looks, for taking pity on a poor soul.

Amanda would like to extend the offer of contacting her via any of the numerous digital portals, including her blog (as she still believes it's the early 2000s).

Peace out, and don't be shy.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I have a Magic Mike-esque figure. Also, I used to be a Life Sciences major... Until I realized that science is kind of hard. And also boring.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
When I was 12, I got to be a jury member for the Toronto International Children's Film Festival. I got a bunch of free food, and Harry Potter Scene-It. I'm still very proud.
How do you define cool?
'Cool' is not giving a f*** what other people think.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Abandoning my social life.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
I love seeing all the weird and crazy stuff that gets posted. Also, I want to buy all the strange gadgets so I feel like a superspy.
What is your favorite trend?
I feel like people are reverting back into childhood nostalgia, which I LOVE. There's been such a resurgence of Disney movies, Pixar movies, etc. I absolutely love it.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
If it makes you excited, chances are it'll make someone else excited, too. Write about something that makes you jump.
How do you reset to be creative?
You just have to stop forcing it. In my creative writing, I find it really hard sometimes to come up with ideas. When I don't think about it for a few days, an idea will come to me like THAT. With trends, it's the same thing. Don't CONSCIOUSLY look for a trend. Just wait until you stumble upon something that interests you, and get writing, you fool.
What inspires or excites you?
People. Stories about people. Weird stories about people. And variations on this theme.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
ROBOTS THAT WILL MAKE FOOD FOR ME.
