In second grade Amanda rocked a pair of sparkly purple corduroy pants; she has spent the past 14 years searching for a pair of pants better than these. She thought that she could find them during the ADK Semester, but instead has enjoyed learning tree names, walking barefoot and writing letters. She grew up loving panda bears. She now is in love with the common loon, a bird that can both swim and fly. She also wishes she was Laura Ingalls Wilder but realized that she may have to branch off and become her own pioneer women. Amanda can often be heard spontaneously singing. Her favorite joke goes like this… “There are two elephants sitting in a bathtub, one elephant looks to the other and asks, ‘do you have a bar of soap?’ The other turns and says, ‘No, I only have radios.’ “ It is jokes like these that make Amanda-Mae Korb, Amanda-Mae Korb and why her giggles are heard throughout Arcadia.
