My name is Vikram Suresh and I am a sophomore at UW-Madison. I am currently studying Biology with the intent of becoming a Physician Assistant. I come from Naperville, IL a suburb close to Chicago. I’m am honored to be a CRCG scholar, and I am very interested in interfaith-dialogue because in today’s political climate, I feel it is critical to understand and respect the religions and cultures of others. This opportunity excites me because I will get the chance to understand other religions from a personal perspective of other scholars, as well as get to share my experiences as a practicing Hindu. I look forward to gain a vast amount of knowledge about different religions from my peers, and am excited to see what the year holds!
