Fall Semester: AMIDEAST

Updating the Blog!

Old Header:  Ahlan wa sahlan. This is Starr's online travel journal of her exchange program in Egypt. In January, I applied for a National Security Language Initiative for Youth (NSLI-Y) scholarship.  After an interveiw and several months of waiting, I was awarded with scholarship for the Arabic Fall Semester Language Program in Egypt with AFS Intercultural Programs. Yay, State Department! I'm so pumped my head might explode! Keep up with my latest overseas brain explosions here.

 New Header:  Amil eeh?! This is Starr Brainard's online travel journal for her studies in Egypt. I have received a Boren Scholarship to study Arabic 06/2012 - 12/2012 (EEK!).  This is my second time to Egypt on a government scholarship to study Arabic, and I look forward more magnificent, frustrating, awkward, and life-changing experiences.  Keep up with my latest adventures here.
