Caroline Ambrose returns from Habitat for Humanity International trip to Veles, Macedonia
Rising senior Caroline Ambrose was one of 16 individuals selected by Habitat for Humanity International for a trip to Veles, Macedonia this summer for its “Learn and Build Experience.” Caroline  shared details of her trip with us, “Monday through Friday we worked building the first floor of an apartment complex and cleared away space for a garden. On weekends we toured the capitol city of Skopje and traveled to the local Roma communities. The work was hard but we worked together as a team. Anytime we started feeling down it was uplifting to see the partner families, who were working and cooking alongside us, so excited about receiving new homes.” Learn more about Caroline’s passion for architecture and urban planning here
