Social media spotlight: Amy Patania Lyons

Hometown:  Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia

Amy Patania Lyons graduated in May with dual degrees in business administration (with a concentration in international business) and international affairs (with a concentration in international security). She minored in Spanish and legal studies. The member of the Honors College is president of the Class of 2018.

“My greatest passion is environmental sustainability. I plan to attend law school for international environmental legal studies and aspire to work at the Environmental Protection Agency and United Nations. I spend a lot of time outdoors; I backpack and hike often, so you can usually find me getting lost in the woods. I love traveling and exploring new places, nationally and internationally. UMaine has lots of hidden gems. You just have to be willing to say yes and embrace the unknown.”
