My name is Zaha Abuelsamen and I am a senior at Bryn Mawr College with a double major in Political science and French in addition to a minor in International Studies. I come from Jordan, and I focus on the Middle East and North Africa as part of my studies. One of my major interests is issues of development in third world countries. I have interned with an international firm for international development that encompasses economic, political, environmental and sustainable development. moreover, I have continued pursuing my interests with interning at the Hashemite Royal court of Jordan and designed local development projects for some of the most unfortunate areas in the country. I believe that development is essential to bring about an end to conflict and I believe that change MUST come from within.
