My name is Hannah Riffe and I am originally from Jacksonville, Florida. I went to college out of state at Auburn University which is located in Alabama. Luckily enough for me, Auburn has a program called The Fellowship of Catholic University Students (or FOCUS) which has missionaries who lead bible studies and really pour into the students spiritually. Through their direction, I was able to deepen my relationship with God and I learned how to lead bible studies of my own. In 2017, I graduated from Auburn with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and started an engineering job in Pennsylvania. There was no community for people my age at my local church in PA, so I began a young adult bible study with my Priest’s help. I also joined a Blessed is She group (a women’s catholic ministry) in a nearby parish. Over the past year, I have felt God calling me to missions work and especially to the young people of Ireland. I am excited to see the amazing things God has in store!
Fun facts about me: I love rock climbing, hiking, camping and pretty much any other outdoor activity. I also love watching movies, reading, and problem solving (I'm an engineer for a reason). I am also good at math.
