After several years of study abroad I have returned to my native home of Jordan to try and make a difference in my community. I have a degree in Political Science and Economics. My main blogging interests revolve around Jordanian and Palestinian issues, primarily those which are political, social and economic.

You can find my writings on my blog: The Black Iris
