Alsultan is studying Political Science at Chestnut Hill College. He began his internship at GEM on February 4th for the
2014 spring term. Part of his work at GEM is to show the world an Arab
perspective on education, politics, culture and the role of media in
shaping our understanding. Emphasis will be on Saudi Arabia, where he
was born, raised and studied for 12 years.
Abdullah aims to show a broader perspective on how the
Arab world looks at Westerners and help students better understand life
in the Arab world. Having lived in two very different cultures
helped him understand that large differences between
societies or governments does not mean that one is wrong or bad. As a
person who is living between two different countries, cultures and
religions, it made him able to understand more the differences and
similarities between people. He believes that education
is the solution to make humans understand each other better, especially
when they work or play together.
Abdullah's programs have been developed and are available by request via videoconference and online applications.
