Why did you join Persian Flagship?
Jasper: "This past summer, I had the opportunity to study Persian in Tajikistan as part of the Critical Language Scholarship program. The immersive learning environment and opportunity to use my language skills in social, academic and professional settings really helped me to advance my Persian skills in a relatively short amount of time. The Flagship Program provides all of these immersive settings and experiences for students, without having to leave the country."

Why did you join Persian Flagship? "My interest in Iran was first sparked when I read Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi for the first time at age 12. Her story was mundane yet extraordinary in an enthralling way. When I heard I decided to keep exploring this interest in college... Persian has been my favorite class this semester, and as such I leapt at the chance to explore the language thoroughly through Flagship." #StudentsofUMDFlagship #UMDPersian #GlobalProfessionals
