During her Study Abroad semester: “I feel so fortunate to be in the heart of the Middle East at such an important time in history. Working with The Jordan Times has been incredible because the media has been crucial throughout the Arab Spring, and Amman has provided me with a unique environment to study and live through this exciting period for the region. I fell in love with Jordan when I was here last year and I simply could not stay away, especially with all the changes happening in the region. I am happy to have been able to call this place my home, and I know I will be back soon.”
Cathryn Adams studied in Amman, Jordan through AMIDEAST, and partnered with the Qasid Institute for Classical and Standard Arabic to complete a Middle East Studies and Arabic Language program. She also interned with The Jordan Times, Jordan’s only English daily newspaper.
