Temple ruins in Amman, Jordan Summer Program.

HI! I’m Jonah

Hi everyone! My name is Jonah Bussgang. I am a senior from Newton, MA. I am super excited to go to Jordan for a lot of reasons. First, I am in Mr. Emmott’s history of the Middle East class and am pumped to actually experience the place we have been studying for the past semester. Second, I have been to Israel a couple of times, and I am super stoked to see a completely different culture and environment that is just next door. Lastly, I am very excited to learn a little Arabic, drink some good tea, and live in the homes of native Jordanians. While I’m not grinding away in Mr. Emmott’s class, you can most likely find me outside. I love whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, or downhill mountain biking. I love being active whether wrestling with my older brother, shooting hoops with friends, or playing hockey with the Milton JV team. I can’t wait for March when we touch down in Amman and begin our grand adventure!
