May of 2013 marked both the end of my sophomore year and the first time I ventured on my own out of the United States. Armed with a suitcase, a scrap of paper with a few phone numbers scribbled on it, and a sizable dose of naiveté, I boarded my flight headed to Amman, Jordan to begin my internship with the Jesuit Refugee Services. During my stay, I taught English while living in a hostel in a conservative Muslim neighborhood in downtown Amman.
