Hi my name is Amanda Sakundiak,


I was born and raised in Calgary, AB, Canada. I moved to Lethbridge, AB two years ago to attend the University of Lethbridge studying Management with a major in Marketing and Finance. I love being a student.

I spent 3 months in the fall of 2015 travelling through South East Asia, visiting family and traveling with Beach Travellers tour groups. This experience gave me a taste of how much the world has to offer. After that trip I can say the “Travel-bug” is a real thing.

In May I was awarded the Brawn Family Foundation Semester at Sea Scholarship. This scholarship is giving me the opportunity to attend Semester at Sea’s Fall 2018 semester – making being a student that much more exciting! I will be taking classes on a ship with world renowned professors and approximately 525 students from around the world. This once-in-a-life-time opportunity is made possible through the Brawn Family Foundation whose scholarship is making a distant dream a reality. I am the first student to receive this scholarship and am grateful to the Brawn Family for the opportunity to partake in such an amazing program.

Follow along as I venture around the world, I look forward to sharing my journey with you!
