Yak #1

Hey! My name is James (or Jaime), and I’m a senior at Milton Academy. I was born and raised in Boston, though I have Spanish and Canadian family. Travelling has been a large part of my life, having done my fair share of it over the years. I regularly visit family in Santander, Spain and Montreal. Additionally, I’ve visited India, Japan, Tanzania, and several countries in Europe. I have yet to visit the Middle East, so this voyage will fulfill that dream. My interest in visiting Jordan stems not only from my passion for travelling but from my interest in international relations and Middle Eastern affairs. When in Jordan, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of political and economic affairs, while also immersing myself in Jordanian culture and society. Finally, to cap things off, here are some factoids about me: I love soccer (my favorite team is FC Barcelona); regarding music, I have pretty diverse taste (my interests range from Bob Dylan to Bob Marley); and I’m an avid follower of the news. I look forward to getting to know everyone more over the coming weeks!
