Faces of UNC Asheville
Amber Munger ’00
Since her first trip to the Republic of Haiti, alumna Amber Munger (Class of 2000) has felt a deep connection to the island country. After that initial visit, she traveled to Haiti several more times to volunteer with rights-based organizations while completing degrees at UNC Asheville and the University of Oregon School of Law. In 2008, Munger became a full-time resident of Haiti’s remote desert region of Anse Rouge. There, Munger, who is fluent in Creole, worked with grassroots organizations to tackle women’s rights, sustainable agriculture and health care. Today, Munger works with Oxfam America’s Haitian Economic Recovery and Livelihood Program, helping Haitians recover the massive earthquakes and cholera outbreaks.
