A little background
I have been studying beuatiful Arabic languagae for a total of 2 years. In fact, I was able to learn by recieving a scholarship. I continued with Arabic classes in graduate school and even travelled to Egypt to take an intensive Arabic class over the winter semester last year. Now that I am out of graduate school and not enrolled in Arabic classes I find it difficult to self teach myself any further.
This is where I need your help!
If I am able to attend the 16 classes the Middle East Institute offers I will be able to continue on my linguistic journey. For the record, I have a knack for this language and take it very seriously.
Why this is important to me?
Currently, I conduct my work in Arabic. So, in order to further myself in my career I need to further my Arabic. This is literally the butter to my bread! Additionally, I write articles such as this one http://www.internationalpolicydigest.org/2014/03/05/iranian-balochi-extremist-groups-silent-lack-unity/ where I use my language skills , education and professional background to help spread information.
Why you should get in involved?
For $430.00 you will be helping me continue my lingustic journey as well as providing me with the tools to better myself. As a recent grad I can't afford to fund myself for this, so I really need your help. Learning Arabic has opened so many doors for me and I know that with these classes I can push myself in further improving this skill, as opposed to it fading away.
As the saying goes, teach a man how to fish and he'll feed himself every day...
I could really benifit from these "fishing lessons."
To raise $430.00 before March 27th.
