BIO:

Kristine Blas knew at a very young age that her daughter Amanda Francel Blas was going to be successful and would eventually take the path of service to her island. Guided by her maternal grandparents Francisco and Cecilia Blas (Familian Dero/Buchi), Amanda developed a strong faith in God and made education a top priority.

“She’s very well-rounded and has accomplished a great deal in her young life,” her mom Kristine said proudly.

Amanda Francel Blas graduated from Notre Dame High School in Talofofo. She attended the University of Portland where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and is just a semester away from completing her Master’s program at the University of Guam.

She didn’t wait to get out of school to begin her work in public service as she interned with U.S. Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon. After graduating, Amanda came back home and her communication and journalism journey began when she joined the ranks of the Pacific Daily News as a reporter leading her eventually to become Deputy Press Secretary of the Office of the Governor at Adelup.

Amanda is also a member of the Army Reserve and a longtime youth leader of Santa Teresita Church in Mangilao.

Amanda is running for Senator and despite her young age, has prepared herself to serve and to lead. Her foundation is rooted in faith and service, she is educated and she is ready.

Vote Amanda Francel Blas for Senator. The Voice of a New Generation of Leaders.
