Ahlan Ahlein Everyone 🙂
I am Jana, a junior at Milton. This will be my second time on the Jordan trip and I could not be more excited for the opportunity to return to a country I very much loved the first time round. While I spend and have spent a lot of time in the Middle East (my parents are both Egyptian and I grew up in Egypt), I am constantly amazed by the complexity of the region and cannot wait to re-engage with Jordan and its diverse inhabitants and hear the incredible stories of some of the people who live there. When I went to Jordan the first time as part of Jordan 2, we were just 7 students! I cannot wait to explore Jordan with a larger group and hear even more perspectives on the complex issues we will undoubtedly delve into.
Finally, I am also very much looking forward to forcing everyone to listen to my and Zac’s Egyptian music and Arabic 😉
