Religious Studies Ambassador


Class of 2025
Major in Religious Studies and Political Science

I'm actively involved as an ambassador for "No2Plastic," championing sustainability efforts. Music is my true passio — I've been honored with the Benenson Award of the Arts, which has enabled me to craft my first album. Currently interning with the International Buddhist Association of America, I'm deeply fascinated by diverse religious perspectives. My overarching aspiration is to drive positive change through empathy and understanding.

Favorite Class: My favorite class at Duke was "Asian Religions and Knowledge of the Other." This course challenged me to critically analyze and question the portrayal of Asian religions in mass media, shedding light on their often exoticized and otherized depictions.
