Angie Thurston is a Master of Divinity candidate at Harvard Divinity School, where she is working to deepen community in the millennial generation amidst increasing religious disaffiliation. Angie grew up as an artsy kid in Boulder, Colorado. After graduating from Brown University, she moved to Brooklyn, New York, where she spent six years as a playwright and arts administrator. Her experiences in the arts taught her the transformative effect of creative collaboration toward a common goal. Seeing the hunger for deeper community among her peers, she began leading creative collaborations toward common goals like personal and social transformation.
Since 2010, she has been chairing semiannual spiritual gatherings for young adults, and recently chaired an international spiritual conference for 350 people at UMass-Amherst. Angie is excited to be connecting and supporting young leaders nationwide who are creating promising initiatives, organizations, and resources that bring their peers together to become their best selves and better our world. She is committed to continuing this work for the rest of her time at Harvard and beyond.
