Attending:U. of Arizona, Tucson
Studying in Egypt (Fall)
Assalamu Alaikum! My name is Jacquelyn Oesterblad and I am a freshman at the University of Arizona. My majors are complicated and ever-changing, but this week my plans involve a duel B.A./B.S. degree in Foreign Affairs and International Political Economy with minors in Arabic and Anthropology. I am also interested in geography and literature and hope to find time to study French and Persian. Consequently, I spend much of my time being stressed out and eating cookies. I enjoy competing on Arizona's Model United Nations team, working on the staff of Persona Literary Magazine, and being a research assistant at the McClelland Institute for Children, Youth, and Families. I am currently working on projects dealing with ethnic studies curricula and LGBT youth suicide. Having grown up in a small town, I look forward to the culture shock of going on a six-month travel binge. I will participate in a month-long Central European seminar with my scholarship program before participating in an eight-week Arabic Immersion program in Morocco. At the conclusion of the summer, I will use my FEA scholarship to spend the fall semester in Egypt at the American University in Cairo, where I am excited for the opportunity to observe a government in transition. I dream of working in diplomacy or academia, although I would settle for a job on The Rachel Maddow Show.
