HDS Voices

Alex Ramos

When I came to HDS I worried about how I would fit in as an atheist and Humanist. I found that this is a place of incredible tolerance and interest in stepping beyond the familiar. I gained a deeper appreciation for people with views radically different from my own, and helped others to do the same.
