Amber Reiff started volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in high school and joined the Purdue Student Chapter as a freshman in 2014. During her sophomore year, she became more involved and held the position of Vice President of Development. While serving in this role, she planned on-campus advocacy events and recruited volunteers for Saturday site builds. In 2017, she traveled to Lampang, Thailand, over spring break with a group of like-minded students striving to make a difference. In this article, she shares her experiences on this trip and explores the impact of her participation. Beyond this trip, she has continued her involvement on the Habitat for Humanity Club Board and is currently the International Trip Coordinator for the 2018 service trip to Nicaragua. She is currently a senior at Purdue studying construction engineering and management and hopes to use her degree to build a brighter future for those in need.
