Living History

Jerash is extremely well preserved, it is an amazing and magnificent place where you realize the importance of conserving historical sites. Walking around Jerash is pure living history, you start imagining what happened there before looking around while appreciating the amazing architecture.

Q: Did you often take photos during your off-campus semester? What prompted you to do so?

I did take a lot of pictures in Jordan. I did it because I am a passionate amateur photographer and Jordan gave me amazing scenarios to take pictures.

Q: Since you’ve returned from the program, have you been glad that you took photos while you were there?

Yes, I have been very glad, especially because this is was a great way of capturing the beauty of Jordan and pictures have allowed me to share my experiences with my friends and family in the U.S. and Peru.
