Hometown: Summit, NJ

Majors/minors: Psychology, Neuroscience

Campus activities, involvement, or other interests: Playing flute in Orchestra, participating in the International Committee of the Social Entrepreneurs of Grinnell, reading, and photography.

Why I chose to do this program: I chose Jordan because I wanted to live and study in a place that has not yet been entirely westernized. I cannot wait to experience life through the lenses of different cultures, religions, traditions, and foods. I am extremely excited to travel somewhere completely different from anywhere I've ever been!

What I'm most excited about: Meeting my homestay family and learning some Jordanian recipes!
