I am currently pursuing a Master’s in Human Rights and Human Development at Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II School of International Studies at UJ. I came to UJ as a recipient of the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship, which allows students to study in a foreign country in order to promote global goodwill and understanding. Studying at UJ has granted me the opportunity to learn more about the region during a time of tremendous transition, one in which human rights and human development plays a crucial role.
As a student and research assistant at the School of International Studies, there have been countless opportunities for continued learning and academic development. Some of these great opportunities include developing, organizing, and aiding in the launch of various conferences, Master’s programs, research centers, and so on. I recently co-organized the 2nd Annual Young Scholars International Conference on the Arab Spring within the framework of the collaboration between the Center for Contemporary Middle East Studies, University of Southern Denmark and Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II School of International Studies.  This conference invites students from the region as well as Europe to submit papers analyzing key themes of the Arab Spring and selects the authors of the best papers to present their finding at the conference. Events like these are one of the many reasons that my experience at UJ has been so fulfilling and productive.
After graduation, I hope to continue working on projects related to human rights and human development and eventually pursue a PhD in a related field. The professors and students at the School of International Studies have given me the research and methodological skills to be able to pursue this goal.
