Amber Smith • Engineer

Superpower: Networking. I can talk to anyone! Love making connections and learning about the interests of others.

Best Spot in the Neighborhood: Nefetari's is a hidden gem in that area. Walking in makes you feel like you're walking into an Egyptian royal palace, and they also have amazing vegan/vegetarian soul food dishes. 

On Entrepreneurship: Working for big companies has not fulfilled my passion. I have a thirst to grow everyday at my own pace by my own means and being an entrepreneur gives me that freedom.

Finding Inspiration: My inspiration is definitely my mother. Growing up, and still to this day, she is my hero. I really just want to continue to make her proud. 

Why Tallahassee: When I first moved to Tallahassee my freshman year I honestly dreaded it, but fast forward to my senior year and I have seen so much growth that I'm considering staying longer after graduation because I see potential and opportunities growing here everyday. 

I love the night life in the Gaines St. area. It’s cool to show off that area when alumni or friends come to visit. It shows how modern and hip Tallahassee is becoming.
