Hello, my name is Hali Jama. I am a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying marketing and international business with a certificate in environmental studies. I grew up in a Muslim household in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, but I always had exposure to other religions especially through my friends. Most of us came from different religious and ethnic backgrounds, so we would often teach each other about our religions, and I was always intrigued by this. Islam has always been a big part of my life and my values. Through this program, I hope to gain more insight into other religions and their practices.
