Scholar Profile: An object in motion tends to stay in motion

Amber Bryan

To say that Amber Bryan ’17 likes to stay busy would be an understatement. This summer, the accountancy major and Memphis, TN, native interned with Deloitte for six weeks before traveling to Ireland with her fellow Notre Dame students for eight days. And all of this on the heels of a Spring semester during which she visited California, Washington, D.C., and New York.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Amber’s favorite AnBryce memory thus far has been traveling to London with her fellow Scholars. “The trip was amazing and it was my first time abroad,” Amber says. “The agenda was filled with a variety of activities like a theatre show, lectures with Notre Dame professors, and time to explore the city. The trip was a great way to bond as AnBryce Scholars.”

Amber’s plans for the next academic year will keep her in perpetual motion. She hopes to apply and receive funding to conduct research in Brazil, lead the Black Student Association as its vice president, and map out a plan for graduate school (she’s choosing between a JD, MSA, and Public Policy masters programs). “I’d like to learn from my failures, mistakes, and peers,” Amber says. “And be proud and happy at the end of each course…no regrets.”
