The Green Hope Falcon

Amelia Mendes

Amelia Mendes, Co-Editor-In-Chief

Amelia Allende Mendes is the Co-Editor in Chief, beginning her second year at The Falcon. She was born in New Orleans before moving to Costa Rica, Florida, and eventually North Carolina. Some of her favorite activities include writing, reading, shopping, and traveling. Amelia has an adorable pet bunny named Rumple (short for Rumplestiltskin). Her favorite artist is Billy Joel. If she could be any animal she would choose to be a Flamingo. She is a sucker for romantic comedies, her favorite being When Harry Met Sally. Her favorite shows include Dynasty and Seinfeld. She loves to reread The Great Gatsby, and one of her biggest fears are bugs. A Floridian at heart she feels most akin to the Palm tree.  Her biggest pet peeve is disingenuity. Ultimately Amelia’s goal is to end up writing for television. Besides her bubbly personality and great hair, her best attribute is her loyalty.
