The following is a description of Amanda's basic stance toward life, the way others see her, the way Amanda Michalka comes across, the face she shows to the world.

Study this page and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between the two, in which case "the inner Amanda Michalka" may not shine through and others may be in for so a few surprises once they get to know Amanda a little better. This page describes the disguise Michalka wears, her role in life, while the page about motivation talks about the real person beneath the disguise.
Amanda Michalka appears gentle and soft, and she acts rather reserved with others until she knows them well and feels it is safe to be open with them. Amanda has a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and is deeply attached to the past: her heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is familiar and safe can be very painful and difficult for her. Michalka tends to cling to people, memories and possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to Michalka.
Michalka approaches life emotionally and subjectively and she is sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around her. Instinctive and non-rational, Amanda Michalka is often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for her actions. Something either feels right, or it does not.
Her emotions and personal loyalties tend to color Amanda's thoughts and opinions. She views life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach herself from her own personal bias and prejudices. She is apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects her and those dear and close to her, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, she may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Simply put: if it is good for Amanda and her near and dear ones, then it is good. If it is not good for her and her near and dear ones, it is no good.
She is tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those she cares about, and has a very strong nurturing, paternal nature.
