When Amiee Maxwell joined Matador U and introduced herself to her peers, the Matador team knew there was something special about her:
“Hi everyone – I am Amiee and I totally understand how difficult it is to come home and write after a full work day. That is why I ditched my totally secure job, minimized my expenses, and saved a ton of cash to head on out to try and live some version of my dream.
I honestly have no idea what I am doing and that is why I signed up for this course. It was too hard for me to whole-heartedly pursue writing while working full-time and I figured that quitting my job would give me the time (and pressure) to succeed – hopefully before all my savings disappears.”
Amiee set up her blog, secured a location-independent internship with Trail Runner Magazine, and jumped headlong into the U’s travel writing course. She’s also joining the Matador team as an intern for Matador Sports.
