Hello! My name is Allyson Mills and I am from Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. I am currently a senior at UW-Madison majoring in English and Music Performance with certificates in Leadership and European Studies. I was raised Catholic and currently attend Pres House on campus, where I lead an art-focused small group and sing on Music Team. Growing up, I have always been interested in how culture and religion impact how people view and conduct their lives, and I am so excited to learn more as a CRGC fellow this year. I am particularly interested in how faith intersects with other identity factors, art, music, and other creative works influenced by religion, how faith intersects with environmentalism, and how different religions impact people’s worldviews. When not at class or work, I enjoy making ceramics at Wheelhouse Studios, drawing and painting, hiking, cooking, biking, hanging out with my friends and partner, and exploring all that Madison has to offer!
