Shuaib Aljabaly

Hello! My name is Shuaib Aljabaly and I am a senior at UW-Madison studying Computer Sciences. I was born in Yemen and moved with my family to America at a very early age. Growing up in a Muslim Household in Coldwater, MI, I attended English school on weekdays and Islamic Arabic school on weekends. Religion is the most important thing to me, but it wasn’t until I came here to campus that I began to ask myself the serious questions, seeing how strong my faith really was. Coming to Madison, WI, I’ve met Muslims and non-Muslims of very different cultures and want to continue these conversations, mixing my knowledge of Islam with others’. Having conversations with friends and teammates here at UW has led me to realize that the way to counter misinformation and Islamophobia is to have open-minded discussion on different beliefs. I am excited about the CRGC fellowship and the chance to exchange in dialogue with other fellows to make a change on campus.
