Jinwan Park

Hi everyone, my name is Jinwan Park, and I am a Junior at UW-Madison studying political science. My hometown is Busan, Korea, a place famous for beautiful temples in the mountains. Although I was raised by a Buddhist mother and a Catholic father, I did not stick to a certain religious belief but always tried to explore the diversity of religion. My parents respected my choice not to have faith and taught me the importance of respect and openness in discussing one’s beliefs. That laid my foundation as a human being to respect others’ religions and remain open to the diversity of thoughts. I hope to learn more about the world of religion while sharing my modest view as a non-religious student through the course of my fellowship.
