My name is Mukadas, and I am a Senior studying Psychology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I was born in Moscow, Russia and have grown up in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Growing up in two different continents, I have met and been around people of different faiths. This has given me exposure to different religions , but also has sparked my curiosity to better understand other faiths. As someone who grew up and practices Islam, in countries which are not majority Muslim I had to understand my faith for myself. I hope to learn more about different faiths through being a CRGC fellow, and fostering dialogues that may be difficult but necessary in understanding those faiths.
