about Hannah OHamill
individual

My BA is in English with a minor in Women's Studies, and my goal is to return to school to earn degrees in religion. I would eventually like to educate others. I grew up in the Methodist church as a PK (preacher's kid); my late mother earned her M.Div. from Candler at Emory U. Currently, I am not affiliated with any denomination or institution. My desire to have an education in religion stems from two things: (1) the total shock I got in college from theists and atheists alike and (2) from nearly dying on New Year's Eve 2015. I was raised as a progressive Christian with a contextual biblical education, so encountering biblical literalists and religious fundamentalists was a new experience for me. Though I thought my religious literacy was better than most, it was still found wanting when I started having discussions with agnostics and atheists who had a more broad and academic understanding of religions. After college and like most people, I did not know what I wanted to do with my life. Shaking hands with death was a very clarifying experience. After I recovered from my emergency surgery, I can't explain it, but I just knew what I needed to do with my life. So, here I am on Deily hoping to educate myself on all things religious while I work on going back to school.
