Congratulations to Chelsea Cooper (Comparative Religion major, 2016) who was named a member of Husky 100!
Chelsea chose the study of Comparative Religion to find her own identity and to understand the role of religion particularly throughout the Middle East. “As a biracial woman, belonging neither here nor there, I have had to forge my own path, and have empathy for those who are Muslim or of Middle Eastern descent in our post-9/11 society, for we face many similar struggles. My undergraduate degrees in Comparative Religion and History prepared me well for my chosen path Security Studies and Counterterrorism. In effect, Comparative Religion will help me take the knowledge I’ve honed here at the UW and turn it into a viable career either in the intelligence community or within an international relief organization.
The Husky 100 recognizes 100 UW undergraduate and graduate students in all areas of study who are making the most of their time at the UW. Chelsea heads off to Georgetown University for graduate work in Security Studies this fall.
