Amanda Woomer ’12 has made so many tiny colored paper cranes that now,
as she carries on a conversation, she doesn’t notice her hands meticulously completing each fold to produce a finished crane.
In fact, she only notices what she is doing when she sets the finished crane on the table and starts on another. The intricate piece of origami is roughly the size of a matchbook and very delicate. In two minutes, she has transformed a 3-by-3-inch scrap of paper into a work of art. She is folding for her friends and for people she’s never met.
