Why did you choose your major?
After traveling Tanzania when I was in high school, I realized my passion for traveling and helping others. After a trip to Israel my freshmen year with Professor Prud’homme, I became fascinated with the Middle East, whether it be experiencing the cultures, languages, and even more, the complexity of relations within the region itself. Since then, I never looked back, in which I have traveled to Israel, the West Bank, Turkey, Egypt, and Jordan, experiencing multiple cultures and religions, and meeting incredible people along the way.
