Hi everyone,

I had originally planned to post my first blog after arriving in Amman at the end of August, but plans change! I recently returned from Washington, D.C., after attending the three day Fulbright Middle East pre-orientation program. It was an incredibly exhilarating three day experience! I’ve never met an entire group of nicer, more courteous, present, interesting, and respectful people. The Fulbright selection committee must have a magic formula for selecting finalists, and whatever it is, it works.

The people involved in the Fulbright (on every level) bring to mind the expression “one person practicing one virtuous quality can change an entire city.” Not only was I introduced to subjects I’d never even thought about before such as: Astrogeology, formats for correcting misinterpretations of documented history, ground breaking educational opportunities for women, and too many more subjects to mention, I came away with a true interest in personally unchartered territories.

Positive impact and results are all about leadership. Alain McNamara, the Executive Director of The Binational Fulbright Commission in Jordan, and the Commission’s Board of Directors’ Selection Review Committee and staff created an extended family out of two hundred plus people, who previously did not know each other, in a mere three days.

We attract what we want, and I’m very grateful I attracted this!
