    “Welcome to Jordan!” is an oddly specific and nearly universal phrase among Jordanians. It’s odd because almost every Jordanian that has so far employed the phrase has done so with the exact same cadence and meter. Like the syllabic meter of 5-7-5 for a haiku, the syllabic meter of “Welcome to Jordan” is a distinct 2-1-2. There is always a clear emphasis on the first syllable of each of the …

    I decided to volunteer for 4 weeks on the south island of New Zealand. I chose to go there instead of the north island because everyone I asked said that the landscapes of the south island are to die for - and they were right! I was lucky enough to see a lot of what the south island has to offer in the 2 weeks after my project, and it …

    Last year, I turned down an opportunity to study abroad in Seoul to study in Tokyo instead. However, I will be returning to Korea this summer all thanks to the Fund for Education (FEA) Scholarship. I got accepted to study at South Korea’s number 1 prestigious school, Seoul National University (SNU)! There, I will be participating in a 10-week intensive program to learn about the Korean language and culture. I …

    Today I went to the ‘Parqué de las Esculturas’ or ‘Sculpture Park’ in English. I did not plan on visiting this park, but like many things in Santiago de Chile, it simply presented itself to me. I was on my way to visit the Gran Torre Santiago, the tallest building in South America. As I got off my bus and began walking I stumbled into this amazing park. Different coloured …

    My friends and family have had a difficult time understanding why I chose to study in Jordan. Television news has propagated the idea that the region is hysteric and chaotic, which has in turn fueled my family’s concern about my safety. Leaving aside the obvious insult that they think I’m unable to take care of myself, I have tried to be very clear that the reason I choose to study …

    Top Three Things I'm Looking Forward To For My 6 Weeks In Antigua, Guatemala: 1. My classes! Okay this maybe sounds really nerdy but I'm honestly looking forward to Sociocultural Influences on Learning. The intersection of culture and education is super interesting/important to me so I can't wait to learn more about it. 2. The food; bring on the black beans and plantains! :) 3. Living in a homestay. This is going to …

    I am seven hours away from departure. I am excited, but nervous at the same time. I know that this experience is going to be  life-changing, but the unknown can create unnecessary fear.  My dad told me that I get my anxiety from him.  My mom told me that he was right due to the fact that he can have advance notices about upcoming events, and he worries until the events are over. The anxiety he gets does not …

    After traveling for almost 18 straight hours, I finally arrived in Hong Kong on Sunday. Hong Kong is a beautiful city, and definitely one I will be visiting frequently during my stay here. After arriving in Hong Kong, I spent the night at a friend's house and the next morning met with the plant manager who escorted me across the border into mainland China.  China is way different than I ever …

    5/13/15 The next day started early. We had a lot of sightseeing to do. After going to bed at around 3 a.m. watching a movie on a serial killer with Andrea, having to be up by 9 seemed crazy but I know Harry knows what he's doing. We started at Wat Po and saw the Reclining Buddha. The building was white but had gold and colorful detailing. We passed by visitors …
