Jaya Hopkins
Master's Student
Journalism

Originally from the Redwood Forest of the California coast, Jaya Hopkins took a leap decade to explore the world as an itinerant Hindu monk. At 30 he went back to school, graduating from the University of Colorado – Boulder magna cum laude. His (then) dream to pursue a PhD in psychology never materialized, and he managed to find a way to hang around Boulder. Now, after two failed marriages and child from his third, Jaya is pursuing his new dream career in journalism.
