Amanda von Trapp

Program Officer, International Visitor Program 

I connect with WorldOregon because: diplomacy is about optimism and education and WorldOregon inexhaustibly encourages that.
Causes I support: the unremitting power of story.

A favorite place to be: on a long hike in Glacier National Park.
A person who inspires me: Goya. Not necessarily for the final work itself but because he was incredibly productive and I think that the “perfection” we seek cannot happen without those seemingly insignificant periods of artless productivity.
