This summer internship is keeping him excited, motivated, and always looking forward to new opportunities. "I learned how to get around in a city as large as Washington, DC, at least compared to my hometown of Bethlehem, and how to manage my time to excel in my internship while still having fun in this beautiful city." Jeries is shown to the right with fellow McGuckin Interns, Ahmed Abu Monshar, and Khalil Barakat enjoying America's favorite pastime, at a game at National's Park!
At Bethlehem University, Jeries is highly involved and enjoys the variety of areas of studies offered at Bethlehem University. "Attending Bethlehem University has taught me a lot of valuable lessons in different aspects of life." He also appreciates the diversity of faith at Bethlehem University. "The University celebrates religious diversity, and it offers a required religious studies course that answers some general questions about Christianity and Islam, and encourages respectful dialogue and curiosity."
Among Jeries' favorite parts of Bethlehem University are the Christian Brothers who live, work, and teach on campus. "The Brothers are so giving and selfless. They are committed to their jobs and the mission of education. Most importantly, they do it with so much passion and dedication that they're always cheerful. They're fun to be around!"
