  1. What are you studying at Duke and what are some of your campus involvements?

Liberal Studies is a very interdisciplinary program. It offers you the freedom and a lot of opportunities to explore. I have explored psychology, literature, creative writing, and Buddhism meditation. I like it very much. Now my focus is in creative writing and literary translation. As for campus involvements, I am in a poetry club, where I also did some acting.

Jummah prayers at Interfaith Friday
Jummah prayers, Interfaith Friday

A small group is gathered on fabric mats in the Student Wellness Center. They come together each Friday for the midday prayers known as Jummah in the Muslim faith. But this Friday is a bit different, as others gather near the rear of the room in quiet observation. Today’s Jummah is part of Interfaith Friday, an event organized by the Jewish Student Union (JSU) and Muslim Students Association (MSA) in order to foster respect and understanding across cultures.
