Though I did not receive academic credit towards my degree when I studied and worked abroad in the spring and summer of 2014, I learned perhaps more than I have learned in any other semester of study at Tufts. Most importantly I learned how to succeed in a dually-cultured work environment through my internship with Questscope (see previous post) in which Jordanian and American staff collaborate to design and implement alternative education programs for at-risk youth.
