Hi my name is Anusha Mehta and I have a sophomore studying Health Promotion Health Equity, on the Pre-PA track. I was brought up in a Hindu Jain environment, and have continued to follow those religious principles and values throughout my life. The strong connection that I have built with god has led me to gain a passion for interfaith, especially to learn about different religious and cultural perspectives, as well as engaging in cooperative, informative and positive interactions to bring together our communities. I am excited about the Center for Religion and Global Citizenry fellowship to learn more about the interfaith and be able to spread that knowledge with my peers in the Madison area. I truly believe that interfaith is a key factor in uniting the people of this country, and a great first step is simply starting the conversation!
