The real success is measured with the contribution to the community. Ms. Amanda Ambrose became one of the first black Celebrity Scientologists. She received counselling by Pierre Ethier in the 80-es. Soon after she became interested in the Church of Scientology, she dedicated her efforts on how this could improve African-American social standing, education and literacy. Amanda wanted to help the African-American community and embraced it fully.
Along with her daughter, Ms. Ambrose founded Ebony Awakenings, a group that has worked to honor African-Americans and create partnerships between Scientology and churches, including Kennedy’s. She lived in Clearwater, often would see live theatre, listen to music along with studying Scientology.
