Some other jobs I've had...
My first year of college I was selected by college faculty to work in Dickinson College's writing center. After participating in a 15 week tutor training course, I facilitated peer tutoring sessions that helped students develop their writing.
The summer between my first and second year of college, I worked as camp counselor at NCCS Camp Newaygo. I supervised campers ranging from
8 to 16 and taught several classes in outdoor wilderness skills, specializing in kayaking

Middle East and North Africa
Dickinson College is a
premier liberal arts college
that encourages its students to actively engage the wider world and challenges them to think differently and act boldly. My four years studying
and concentrating on
the Middle East and North Africa
not only gave me a firm understanding of
foreign affairs, global economics, and Middle Eastern history
but, also instilled within me a deep-seated belief that if we are going to
solve the world's most pressing problems
we must learn to collaborate and work with each other.
I studied at AMIDEAST for two semesters, taking classes in Modern Standard and Colloquial Arabic as well as
content courses on variety of subjects
having to do with the Middle Eastern
politics and culture. I also participated
in a sociology research-based seminar
that exposed me to a variety of
And pushing myself to new heights...
A little bit about me...
Born and raised in Michigan, I moved to
Pennsylvania to study how the world works at Dickinson College. My interest in the Middle East took me to Amman, Jordan to learn arabic and immerse myself in an entirely new culture.
I'm very curious and have a desire to learn about everything. I'm always asking questions and acquiring new interests.
After graduation, I returned to the MENA region to try my hand at teaching English in Tunisia. I fell in love with education and learned a thing or two about the global education crisis along the way.
Down Right Gritty
Let's turn your ideas into reality!
This past year found me back in Jordan working with a start-up NGO attempting to start an education revolution by equipping and empowering youth to become changemakers. In the process, I started on my own quest to change the world.
During my senior year I worked closely with a professor who taught non-native English speakers academic writing; I gave short in-class lectures and lead student peer-review sessions.
I'm a creative detailed-oriented professional who helps organizations turn their ideas into reality. I have strong research skills and extensive experience collaborating on a broad range of projects with diverse groups of individuals. Finally, I am an excellent communicator who is solution-oriented.
1. writing is more than a means of communication, it is a way of exposing as
well as seeing into your soul
3. everyone should have access to a good education that
encourages them to make their dreams come true.
4. traveling is the best method to get to know yourself and
become the person you want to be.
5. if it's sunny out, go enjoy it and don't take it for granted. Be in awe of nature's beauty .

I take comfort in the fact that no matter what life throws
at me, I can always count on my steadfast belief in the importance
of travel. Traveling for me is not just about hopping in a car or getting on a plane and going somewhere to relax and enjoy the scenery; it is so much more. I can always count on traveling to allow me to quench my curiosity about new places and people as well as provide me with the chance to reflect on the life I have temporarily left behind...

Living in a land known for its beautiful doors, this phrase perfectly sums up my year in Tunisia. My time there taught me the importance of; looking out for myself, responsibility, and of course looking for the next open door
Jordan, my home away from home. A place that wrapped me in its rich cultural embrace, while simultaneously showing me who I am. This past year I have learned how to adapt to new situations and to embrace new challenges. However, the most valuable lesson I take away from my time here is to embrace what makes me different and celebrate that these pieces that make me who I am today...
