My name is Kyra Fox, and I am a senior majoring in International Studies and Psychology with a certificate in African Studies. Coming from an interfaith family, dialogue across difference has always been fundamental to how I construct my identity. My experiences with interreligious dialogue at UW have transformed my own set of beliefs – and I am eager to be challenged by this year’s CRGC Scholars. I am enticed by the challenge of finding harmony in what seems like insurmountable differences – religious, political, or otherwise – and more than ever, I sense the urgency of this task. I see religion as a space not only for worship, but also for social change. I hope that the CRGC can strengthen and amplify the voice of interfaith unity at UW, working to dismantle intolerance and injustice while showing that it is possible – and powerful – to unite in the face of those who would like to see us divided.
