The Norwich Record | Summer 2018
Sharing the Pacific with seals, blacktip and whitetip sharks, NU cadet Amber Reichart ’19 snorkels on her birthday beside a volcano in the Galápagos Islands. The Air Force ROTC scholar spent two weeks last October building community centers on the archipelago while on break from her studies at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador. The six-month sojourn marked the first trip outside the U.S. for the Spanish, international studies, and political science triple major—an experience that taught her “how to be comfortable with being uncomfortable.” Next stop: A summer NU Peace and War Center trip to Israel.
