Prior to attending Tufts University Adam lived and worked in Amman, Jordan for several years. He is fluent in Arabic, both Modern Standard and Levantine, and has a deep interest in learning about the world. During his time in Jordan, he worked as a language tutor to young Jordanian students and as an intern with a media advocacy and training NGO. There he had the opportunity to work with people across the Middle East supporting media literacy efforts for both Jordanian and Syrian journalists. It was while in Jordan, one of the most water stressed countries in the world, he became passionate about the intersection between a community’s access to water and its security and wellbeing. He hopes to use his knowledge gained from the Sustainable Water Management program degree to help communities secure stable access to water in an environmentally sustainable manner both domestically and internationally. Adam graduated with an undergraduate degree in International Affairs and Security Policy from George Washington University in Washington D.C. in 2017.
