The U.S. Embassy in Jordan recently held an event for all former female participants of the SWT and CA programs. Here's what Dana Yousef at the Institute of International Cultural Exchange had to say about the event:
"On September 22nd, the U.S. Embassy Consular Section in Amman, Jordan hosted a reception for female Jordanian SWT and CA alumnae. The gathering was very successful, and the young ladies were able to share their feedback and experiences with each other and with the new 2019 prospective students. They also had the chance of meeting the consuls who are supervising these programs at the embassy.
The U.S. embassy works very closely with the local agencies in Jordan to support the cultural exchange programs, and they are taking the responsibility of promoting and creating the needed awareness about the importance of such programs at many universities around Jordan through the special events and seminars they are holding.
This has created a great understanding by many more students - males and females - and their parents and has encouraged them to apply and participate in such enriching and life-changing experiences for the 2019 season."
