Annie is from Taiwan and originally came to UWest to study English, then returned for graduate school in psychology. Fox is a poet from South Dakota who wanted to explore a larger world. Venerable Sumitta is a Buddhist monk from Sri Lanka who was already a college professor before becoming a student again in UWest’s PhD program in Religious Studies.
