Our Multi-Faith Fellows for the Fall 2017 Semester.
Ambassadors for religious & spiritual lIfe, creating opportunities for community and partnership across religious lines.
Katie Carlson ’20
I’m a sophomore from Old Greenwich, CT. I grew up attending unaffiliated church services with my family, during which I loved to escape and take my dog for a walk in the woods — a practice that soon became my own version of religion. These days, I identify as spiritual, and I enjoy learning about a variety of religious traditions through Multi-Faith. I am deeply interested in how faith affects and connects people. Multi-Faith pushes me to consider the critical, existential questions we often evade in everyday life, and I love the community that we create within that space.
Tenzin Choephel ’18
Hi, I’m Tenzin. I’m a senior from New Haven, CT and a multi faith fellow for the coming semester. I practice Tibetan Buddhism and have been attending multi faith council since my first year at Colby. I joined the fellows so I could have an impact on and help improve the club that had offered me a space to discuss topics not often discussed in the wider Colby community. Through Multifaith I was also able to attend an interfaith conference which was one of the most rewarding experiences of my college career so far. The discussions and interactive experiences with people from different faiths and colleges created a lot of learning opportunities.
Hello! My name is Iliana Eber, and I will be a sophomore majoring in Government and Anthropology with a minor in Jewish Studies. I was raised as a Reform Jew, and Judaism has always been a big part of my life, though much more in a cultural sense than a religious one. When I’m not studying or at multi-faith, you will likely find me channeling my inner Coloradan and adventuring outside, hanging out with kids, or working to smash the patriarchy with the Feminist Alliance. Since coming to Colby I have loved being a part of Multi-Faith Council, and I can’t wait for the upcoming year with all of you!
Regina Martinez ’20
I am a sophomore from El Paso, Texas and I am a Roman Catholic (but it’s complicated). I am really thankful for being part of Multi-Faith council because it is a place of great conversation about what really matters to us and why. I feel free and encouraged to question my beliefs and learn about other people in an intimate and judgement-free context. I am also pretty funny.
Christina Mouradian ’19
I am a junior from Providence, Rhode Island. I study Anthropology and I seek relaxation and adventure in the great outdoors of Maine. As a Quaker, I find fulfillment in our Multi-faith discussions about religious pluralism and personal spiritual practice. I became a Multi-faith fellow in January of my sophomore year and I look forward to guiding discussions that build the bond of understanding and empathy.
