Good Morning, Starshine! The earth says hello!

Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Ontiveros and I am a first year undergraduate at the University of La Verne. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I am grateful to say that am a Latina that comes from a big extended family where I’m the oldest of 6 children. I am also a dog parent of 6 small dogs, whom I miss very much :’(.

On my spare time, I really don’t do much. I usually scroll through Twitter to look at memes and make vine references. But, when I get the chance to actually do something, I really enjoy spending time with family and friends. I enjoy amusement parks, beaches, hiking, touring around cities, and the movie theaters. Things I usually like to watch are: scary, action, superhero movies, Disney films, Studio Ghibli films, New Girl, Steven Universe, My Hero Academia, Shane Dawson, and so much more. When listening to music, I am pretty versatile but my preferred music genres are alternative rock and early 2000s music. My favorite groups to listen to are: Twenty One Pilots, The Neighbourhood, S.O.A.D., GOT7, and BTS. When it comes to dancing, I really enjoy it when I am in a group of friends but suck at it really badly.

Well, thank you for taking the time to get to know me! If you ever see me around, feel free to stop by and say hi and recommend me some music to listen to! I hope to get to know you better and I am very excited to be part of ULV’s Her Campus! <3





Much like the Disney character, I don't let society define who I am & I always do what I think is right. Communications/Public Relations major, Class of 2019 at the University of La Verne. I aspire to learn from the best to better serve the world we live in by creating clear messages for the public.
