I majored in Religious Studies because religion is the backbone of most cultures.  If you want to change behavior or motivate people to act within a culture you have to understand the underlying values.  Understanding religion is a big part of that.  But unfortunately, more often than not, it gets left out of policy decisions.

I focused on South Asian religions in school.  You’ll see a fair amount about Hinduism and Buddhism.  But I also came from a mixed religion family.  My mother is Catholic and my father is Jewish.  So, Christianity, Catholicism, and Judaism will pop up every now and again.
