My name is Hope Peterson and I am a junior at UW Madison. I am double majoring in Environmental Studies and Psychology with a certificate in Southeast Asian Studies. I am from St. Croix Falls, a very small town in northwestern Wisconsin. Although I was raised with a Lutheran-Christian faith background, it was not until my second year of college that I began to take interest in various spiritual practices. Since then I have spent time studying Buddhism, different aspects of Christianity and many other spiritual topics/practices. As a Center for Religion and Global Citizenry Undergraduate Scholar, I am excited to expand the conversation of interfaith on campus, connecting others to its intense importance and relevance to themselves and this time.
