When not busy with academics and extracurricular activities, Amber is giving back to her community. She has volunteered at the local nursing home and with Habitat for Humanity. She has assisted in projects to clean up both the park and the elementary campus. Through a community outreach program, Amber has spent time cleaning houses and doing yard work.
