Najma Hurre

Hello! My name is Najma and I am a sophomore double majoring in Global health and Nursing and with a minor in digital studies. I grew up living across three continents being surrounded by a variety of religions. While I was raised in a practicing muslim household, having friends from other religions expanded my interest in faith from a young age. I spent 12 years of my life studying Islam whether in Islamic school or going to weekend school. The peak of my fascination with religion was my high school class about all different faiths and their origins. It wasn’t until studying the similarities between all religions did I realize interfaith conversations should be a priority. I hope that this will be a great opportunity to recognize and celebrate our similarities and differences.
