Amanda Quesada was born and raised in Queretaro, Mexico, and relocated to the state of Georgia with her family at the age of 15. She attended the University of Georgia where she received a B.A. in Geography. Amanda decided to focus her studies on human rights during and after her exchange studies at Sciences Po in Paris, France.
Right after college, Amanda worked for the Blasingame, Burch, Garrard & Ashley law firm in downtown Athens, GA, as their Communication Coordinator working on behalf of thousands of women’s cases injured by medical devices. She, then, ran community organizing efforts for several statewide political races in Georgia. Amanda joined Solidarity Strategies, a Latino-owned and operated political consulting group based out of D.C., on April, 2015. She was Solidarity Strategies’ Vice President from December 2015 until July of 2016 when she decided to continue her graduate education.
Amanda received her Master’s degree of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS, 2018) with a concentration on Global Politics and Security from Georgetown University. She is now very excited to join the FOSI team in ensuring policy catches up and meets the practical standards for families’ online safety.
For most parents, it would be horrifying to find explicit or offensive content on their child’s public page or profile for everyone else to see. A parent wants what’s best for their child, and surely, they want their kids to personify the values they’ve imparted on them.
