Hey! My name is Vishnu, I’m from Tampa, FL and I’m a first-year Economics major on the pre-law track. I’m heavily involved in the policy and advocacy side of housing through my work with YIMBY Action, a group that fights for the creation of more housing to alleviate the market shortage. I joined Habitat because I’ve found it to be a tangible way I can directly add to our depleted housing stock, and after attending a few builds, I’ve really fell in love with H4H.
