I can be inspired by almost anything.
My favorite spiritual places:
I do not have a physical location as a favorite spiritual place. I tend to retreat into literature as a my spiritual sanctuary.
Interreligious causes I care about:
Cultural and Religious inclusion, human rights, youth participation, media reform
Changes I am working toward in my community:
Creating an inclusive environment on my campus and having a statewide Collegiate Faith Council in Alabama
I am a junior at Birmingham-Southern College in Birmingham, Alabama and I am studying leadership theory, religion, and my main area of study is English with concentrations on rhetoric and composition, poetry, and the interdependence/community construct of literature. Basically, I like to study about anything and everything.
I will be the Diversity Delegate at my college this coming school year and will be the spokesperson for the multicultural office.
I am also an intern for the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations and I my goal is to create a North American Youth Network to connect the youth of North America who share a similar interest in cultural and religious diversity.

My name is Engin AKSU. I live in the city Kütahya -Turkey. I work as a Turkish teacher in a primary school. I also research Quran (HolyBook of Islam) and believe the brotherhood of people who believes "only one God". In Quran Part:22 (Hac- Pilgrimage sentence: 40) Allah says"(They are) those who have been expelled from their homes in defiance of right,- (for no cause) except that they say, "Our Lord is Allah". Did not Allah check one set of people by means of another, there would surely have been pulled down monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of Allah is commemorated in abundant measure. Allah will certainly aid those who aid his (cause);- for verily Allah is full of Strength, Exalted in Might, (able to enforce His Will)." And Allah says ( Part:2 (Bakara) ,sentence:62) "Those who believe (in the Quran), and those who follow the Jewish (scriptures), and the Christians and the Sabians,- any who believe in Allah and the Last Day, and work righteousness, shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve." Those are some examples from Quran.
I am the writer of the book named "Divine Brotherhood". "Divine Brotherhood" was published by Red Lead Press in 2007 and it is open to sales in Amazon.com now.
