Blog Post #1 – Matthew Fuller

My name is Matthew Fuller and I am just finishing up my junior year. I am studying Biology while also minoring in Management. I love the outdoors and as of now my favorite place on Earth is the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in northern Minnesota. I am the youngest of 4 and have 3 older brothers. I owe them a lot of credit for shaping me into the person I am today. One learning goal I have for this program is to become more immersed in the Buddhism religion. I find religion fascinating and find myself wanting to learn more about something that I have little knowledge about. I am very excited to have conversations with the monks and to learn more about their way of life. Overall, I can’t wait for this trip and truly feel like it will be a trip of a lifetime!
