Currently residing in Brooklyn Amara grew up in Syracuse the relocated to North Carolina where she dedicated her life to children as a Math teacher working with students with special needs and individual challenges. 

Amara was elated by her students’ receiving the highest scores on their Math state exams, ninety fifth percentile state-wide ranking, also her greatest accomplishment to date. 

Her personal motto: “Success never comes with out really hard work. This philosophy has led to her personal success and positive impact on children.
