Hailing from Memphis, Tennessee, Justin Cameron decided to be a part of Habitat for Humanity of Iowa's Marshalltown Disaster Response Team in order to seize a great opportunity to grow and learn new skills. “What I’ve enjoyed most on this path is meeting new people on deployments and working on a lot of different construction projects.” Recently, one of those projects included braving the hot Iowan summer sun in order to place together new fencing for a homeowner. “It was of course tiring and tedious in spots, but it was made that much easier with help from the crew,” he explains. “It’s crazy how we all come from different parts of the country and have bought into the same goal.” His fellow members may be surprised to know that Justin was an avid French horn player back in his more impressionable years. A not so secret passion of his now involves enjoying a well grilled burger with a few games of Apex Legends in between bites.
