Tanya Raghu, MELC and Plan II double-major, won State Department Scholarship to study in Jordan

Tanya Raghu, a Middle Eastern Languages & Cultures and Plan II double-major, won the National Security Language Initiative for Youth U.S. State Department Scholarship. The scholarship allowed her to spend six weeks studying Arabic at the Qasid Institute in Amman, Jordan. Tanya did not have any previous experience with the Arabic language when she arrived in Jordan, making it especially challenging since she was living with a Jordanian host family. Tanya says: “My favorite experiences from the trip included hiking in Petra, spending a night in the middle of the desert in Wadi Rum, and floating in the Dead Sea!” Sounds amazing, Tanya!
