Apart from studying Arabic, I created my most cherished memories on my trips and excursions in Jordan. My most memorable experience was staying in Bedouin camps during my overnight trip in Wadi Rum. The ambiance of the desert was truly magical. Camel riding into the sunset, stargazing on our night trek and bonding with my friends by the campfire were unforgettable memories. I also loved learning about the Bedouin culture and having meaningful conversations about their lifestyle. My time in Wadi Rum was remarkable and I long to go back.
For many students studying abroad sounds like an unimaginable dream due to expenses and fees. Some students get discouraged when financial issues get involved. As a Gilman scholar, I want to reassure students that there are an abundance of programs and scholarships that can make your aspirations come true. The Gilman scholarship helps support students with limited financial means to study or intern abroad. Students can be awarded up to $5000, in addition to the opportunity to receive a Critical Language award of up to $8000. Check out my instagram for resources in regards to the Gilman Scholarship @tasmiah_gilmangram and for more information go to gilmanscholarship.org
"Studying abroad for me was a way to expand my perspective and really see what the world has to offer. I grew up in an environment where diversity was embraced and encouraged, so it was vital for me to have part of my educational experience take place in an international setting. London, England is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and my time as a student there allowed me to meet and network with students and professors from all over.
I was able to travel to three other countries with new found friends, and my semester abroad [started] the fire within me to travel for the rest of my life.
One of my favorite memories In Jordan was visiting the lowest point on Earth, the Dead Sea. Feeling the salty water tingle my skin was a refreshing sensation. I especially loved camouflaging myself with the natural mineral mud. It was so much fun playing with my friends and watching them disappear behind masks of dark clay.
A unique benefit of our courses are that they are taught in the tutorial system. In addition to attending small group seminar classes, students learn from their tutors in tutorial sessions, where students will receive individualised attention to review their work.⠀⠀
At Cambridge, these are called "supervisions" and at Oxford they are called "tutorials."
One benefit of our courses using the tutorial system is that students receive direct feedback on their work in a small discussion setting, giving them the opportunity to ask direct questions and receive individualised attention. ✨

"I studied abroad with AIFS in Spring 2019 in Viña del Mar, Chile, and the experience changed my life. Previously, I had never been out of the United States, so getting the opportunity to go to Chile was a huge deal for me!
Ethan is a 21 year old American from San Diego, who is joining us during a year out from college.
Ethan jumped straight into a degree in Business and Accounting at the University of San Diego at the strong recommendation of his family. 2 years in and he’s not quite sure whether that’s the direction he wants to go in. In steps Edumadic.
“I think that being a part of an Edumadic program will expose me to different aspects of life and work that I have never seen before, take me out of my comfort zone, and reveal some interests and passions that I never knew I had, helping me to choose a career path that I am satisfied with and excited to pursue in the future.”
Ethan was fortunate enough to have travelled with his family throughout his childhood, although never for longer than a 2 week holiday. He’s conscious that there are many other cultures in the world other than the American one he grew up in, and appreciates the value in learning about these cultures.
Fun fact about Ethan, he recently interned at a tattoo parlour! So when he’s not working through the academic classes he’s enrolled in through our college partners, he can be found sketching tattoo designs for the other Edumads!
You can find Ethan on Instagram @ethan_wilson

"Studying abroad at @maynoothuni in Ireland was a dream come true for me! I was able to take classes that aren’t offered at home and I was able to visit members of my family that I had never met before! I wanted to study abroad in Ireland to connect with my roots and experience what it’s like to live halfway around the world. I met people from all over the world and I met some of my best friends during my time at Maynooth." ~ @mkaate
"As a nursing student, I did not know it was possible to study abroad until one of my Spanish advisors brought it up to my attention.
I decided to study abroad in Granada, Spain [in] spring of 2018. I had the opportunity to be the first from the program to participate in their medical internship. Thus, I was able to practice my Spanish in the medical field and put into practice all that I have learned thus far in the nursing program. I had the ability to work with some of the most incredible doctors and helped deliver two babies. For this opportunity, I could not be more thankful!
"When you have the opportunity to study abroad, your mind opens. You expose yourself many times to a new language, new food, new cultural practices, and new ideas. My experience in Japan didn't just help me become a stronger writer through my class, but also a better citizen of the world in how I interact with other people and process other perspectives." Melissa Lent @melmollyrose on her experience studying abroad in Tokyo, Japan -- Spring 2019.
"Studying a semester abroad has granted me the opportunity of a true global and cultural education. I left London with a newfound confidence in myself and desire to return in the near future. In just four months, I was able to visit thirteen countries and eighteen cities!
Something you might not know about me is that I am 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆, 𝗽𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗳𝘂𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝘀𝗵𝘆. I always have been. Even in preschool, I struggled making new friends, and I always refused to talk to strangers (and even people I actually knew) when I was a kid.
Even now, I won't pick up the phone if I don't know who's on the other end, and I almost never ask for help if I can avoid it.
When I'm traveling on my own, I usually bring my tripod along and set it up to get pictures of myself. But sometimes, that's just not an option. Most of the time, I end up not even getting a picture of myself. But sometimes, I manage to get over myself and sheepishly walk up to someone and ask them to take a picture of me.
It's so stupidly nerve-wracking, even though they would never say no or look at my like I'm crazy. But it's just one of those things that I get super nervous about.
Anyways, shoutout to the lovely old Chinese man who COMMITTED to getting an awesome photo of me on this highly photographed spot in Rothenburg ob der Tauber. He's my new idol.

THE BIGGEST MISTAKES I MADE IN ROME
Y'all liked my 10 worst travel moments of 2020 post so much, but did you know I also recently posted a blog digging into all the dumb things I did in one specific place: Rome?
Yup, I did.
Here's a sneak preview:
🤦♀️Thought shoulder season would mean no tourists & didn't book anything ahead of time
🤦♀️Didn't check the weather and got stuck in the freezing rain
🤦♀️Validated my ticket the wrong way, had a bus straight up not turn up, and other transport-related misshaps
🤦♀️Forgot my Lactaid
Want to get into all the gory details? The link to my post on how NOT to visit Rome is in my bio!
