Super exciting news to share!! Back in June, I applied to participate in an exchange program with the London Middle East Institute to go to Jordan for 10 days next month….and I just found out yesterday that I was accepted!
As kind of a funny story, I applied really last minute, and completely forgot to tell my mom about it – until yesterday (oops!). She’s totally on board though, and it sounds like a really cool opportunity.
There will be an orientation meeting in a couple weeks where I’ll get more information, but I’m absolutely so excited. I’ve been interested in and studying the Middle East for so long now, and I finally get to actually go there!!
