“Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the opportunity to have interned at the Embassy of Jordan in DC! Working in the Jordan Information Bureau, I have been able to assist with a number of assignments, which have exposed me to a variety of media outlets and better acquainted me with social media sites like Twitter. I have become a stronger writer and a better analyst through my assignments, and I have found that I enjoy media-related work that focuses on current events. I traveled to Jordan for 8 days in November with my classmates through American University's Washington Semester Program. This internship experience has allowed me to really develop a deep appreciation for Jordan, and I am thankful for the knowledge I have gained this semester.”

“The Embassy is a great place to intern as a college student. At most internships, you will staple papers and run coffee errands; I never did that once here. I learned so much about Jordan, the Middle East and the Peace Process and made great professional connections as well. I met and spoke with important diplomats and security personnel on several occasions. I even had the opportunity to meet King Abdullah II and greet him in Arabic!”
