Click play to listen to an interview with Amanda Prescott, a senior at Ansonia High School.

She’s into some strange stuff — stuff she hopes to turn into a career.

Prescott is a self-taught special effects makeup artist.

Special effects makeup artist are the movie magic people who do things like creating the ghoulish zombies on ‘The Walking Dead.’

In this interview, Valley Indy reporters Eugene Driscoll and Ethan Fry talk to Amanda about how she became interested in the career, and how her family, friends and teachers have supported her dream.

This episode was recorded on Facebook Live May 3, 2017 during ‘The Great Give,’ a 36-online fundraiser.

The Valley Indy used Amanda’s appearance while urging people to donate to Ansonia Public Schools during the event.

You can follow Amanda on Instagam at (warning: gross).

The music in this episode was provided by Patrick Gorman.

“Navel Gazing” is heard every Monday at 12 p.m. on 106.3 FM within the City of New Haven.

This episode is also available on iTunes, Libsyn and Sound Cloud.
