– Amanda Jameson: Amanda is an avid hiker and blogger, focusing her content on diversity in long-distance hiking. Through her published works and posts on her blog, “Brown Girl on the NST,” Amanda discuss both the logistical preparations for long-distance backpacking trips and weaved her own lived experiences, commentary on race, history, culture, and heritage, and how that impact different communities of color and the outdoors.
