Amber Brkich is from Beaver,
Pennsylvania and is a recent graduate from Westminster College, where
she earned a B.A. degree in Public Relations, minoring in Speech
Communications. Prior to departing for Australia, while Brkich
searched for her "career job," she was an administrative
assistant and lived with her parents. Her previous occupations while
attending school included waitress, librarian assistant, swimming
instructor, lifeguard and babysitter for her professor.
Brkich's favorite hobbies are going out with her friends, dancing and
just generally having fun. She's a member of Alpha Gamma Delta
Sorority, where she was Vice President and New Member Coordinator.
Brkich also belongs to the Catholic Church. Her primary reasons for
trying out for Survivor: The Australian Outback include lack of
change, excitement, and kangaroos in her life, although the million
dollars wouldn't hurt either!
Her birth date is August 11, 1978.
