Charlottesville, Virginia - I have just returned to the United States after living, studying, and working in Morocco for two years. I will be moving to the United Kingdom to begin graduate school in Middle Eastern Studies this fall. I was born and raised in the United States--the southeast, to be precise. Yes, I spent time growing up in places not particularly known for their tolerance and enlightenment.
