What she enjoys most about Habitat is that there is always a challenge and that there are different things to do. She says” If you get tired or worn out with one there’s always something new and exciting to do the next day.” She also enjoys helping people within her community and people that are not from Columbus, Ga. Most importantly she enjoys helping others have a better life.
