Meet Your Inquiry Specialist

Name: Hanna Young

Cluster: 27, Global Islam

Majors: Psychology and World Arts & Cultures

Minor: Community Engagement and Social Change

Hometown: Los Angeles

Fun Facts:

  • I play four instruments and compose music.
  • Before teaching with the Global Islam Cluster, I taught with Cluster 30, Never-Ending Stories: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Myth.

I wished I’d known: I wish I had gone into the course with more self-confidence. I was typically hesitant to share my ideas and thoughts, but the only way to get feedback on what you're thinking is to share!

Benefit of taking a cluster: I am so glad I participated in the Cluster Program because it gave me public speaking opportunities, helped my writing grow stronger, and allowed me to hone my critical thinking skills.
