Most good stories are told from the middle, and by the time we move back to the beginning, it all makes sense, but I believe that stories should be told at the starting point, and my story started with fear. I was so frightened about applying to the University of Jordan mainly because I was convinced I would be lost there: literally, mentally and emotionally. I grew up listening to stories of how vast it is, filled with diversity, and a brand new world where I would get to discover myself and learn a lot.
To tell the truth I did get lost, got lost in its beauty, knowledge, and uniqueness. Everyday really did feel like a brand new adventure, and I had never imagined it would be like this: that I would get to sit down with a group of people of different nationalities, religion, ideas and beliefs and only have our university as the same common factor and feel like we belong. I didn’t know I could make such strong connections with professors and feel like I have a place to turn to professionally and personally.
I love my faculty, the Faculty of Foreign Languages, more than I could express, and I am so pleased with all the friendships I've made along the way and so excited about what's to come. At The University of Jordan I have learned a lot academically, but I also learned so much about various extra curriculum programs and volunteer work that the University offers to its students. This is why I am looking forward to the next semester where the University will be holding “The Hult Prize competition,” and can't wait for what’s to come.
