English student connects cultures with bilingual book
Christiana Castillo is a Wayne State senior, double majoring in English and peace and conflict studies. "Peace and justice have always been incredibly important topics to me, and WSU is the only university in Michigan that offers a peace and conflict studies undergraduate program," says Castillo. "I've always been passionate about writing, communicating and telling stories, so an English major seemed to be a great fit for me as well."
