The Jordan program was a wonderful combination of continual support from AMIDEAST staff and fellow students, and many opportunities to spread my wings. It allowed me to explore the food and culture of the region, gain unique knowledge on Islam and women's issues, and grow into a more confident person. In addition, I made life-long Jordanian friends who truly fostered cross-cultural dialogue. I was even acknowledged as the most improved in Modern Standard Arabic! I think it's incredibly important to travel to the Middle East in this day and age. Be a catalyst for positive interactions between America and the Middle East. This program changed my outlook on the world.
