Anna Aversa

Hello! My name is Anna and I am a junior majoring in Journalism and pursuing a certificate in Religious Studies. I am from Cedarburg, Wisconsin (just north of Milwaukee) where the population is predominantly Christian. I was raised in a Catholic household and went to weekly Christian Formation classes as well as attended mass every Sunday. After being Confirmed at age 17 I began to take my faith into my own hands, asking questions about my religion. After my Confirmation I grew stronger in my faith, by attending Catholic conferences, camps, and eventually Christian groups on campus. As I grew older I became fascinated by religions outside of my own. Understanding other religions allows me to understand others better. I look forward to learning more through the Interfaith Fellowship Program and participating in important conversations surrounding religion.
