What made you decide to study religion and what made you decide to do so at Elizabethtown?
I wanted to study religion because I’ve always been fascinated by the way religion has shaped people’s lives and cultures. I am passionate about inter-religious dialogue and building bridges of communication between religions. The passionate faculty and unbiased and open outlook of Elizabethtown’s Religious Studies department is what showed me that it was the perfect fit for me.
What has been your favorite memory of your study of religion here so far?
I don’t know if I have a specific favorite moment from studying Religious Studies at Elizabethtown, but I love every time I can connect something that I learned in a Religious Studies class to an event or experience in the wider world. Any time I can make that connection, I get giddy.
