About The Writer
Amanda Trusty is an award-winning poet, most well-known for her poem, Cats Like Leaves, that she wrote in the third grade. She might still have the ribbon somewhere. She has a special gift for screwing up a manicure within five minutes of getting one, keeping many Etsy designers in business, and wearing colors that do absolutely nothing for her complexion.
Trust Me, I’ve Been There is a blog about Amanda’s personal struggles with binge-eating disorder, and the realities that performers face in regards to weight, body image, and rejection. Having danced ever since she could walk, she spent seven years in New York City working as a professional musical theatre actress, choreographer, and dance teacher. She uses humor and real, honest stories to communicate to all her readers that no one is perfect.
At the moment, she is most well known for her viral video to Katy Perry’s “Roar“, in which she uses the art of burlesque and her 23 years of dance training to make the statement that she can peel show business’s labels of “fat” and “big” off her body and dance her joy no matter what. Currently residing in Hawaii, Amanda teaches dance to Hawaiian children, paddleboards, writes, attempts the guitar, and makes a continual effort to like spirulina.
