Hi all!

My name is Marieme Barry and I’m a senior day student at Milton Academy from Boston, Massachusetts. I’m a dancer, game show enthusiast, and I WILL beat you at UNO, Monopoly, or chess.

I’ve taken French for over 6 years at Milton, but I’m interested in taking Arabic in college. During my time in Jordan, I’m looking forward to learning the language (I did start lessons a long time ago, but I’ve forgotten pretty much everything). I’m also an intended political science major, and I look forward to learning about Jordanian politics hands on, especially with the concepts I’ve learned in my comparative government course this year. I look forward to meeting everyone else on this trip!
