“If we want to build a truly just and equitable world, we need more people willing to look at things from multiple perspectives. Travel and study abroad are two of the best ways I know to become one of those people.”
AJ holds a doctorate in sociology from Temple University in Philadelphia. Prior to that, he completed a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and in women’s and gender studies, and a master’s degree in philosophy from American University in Washington, D.C.
AJ first studied abroad in high school as part of a three-week exchange program to Munich, Germany. In college, he spent one semester in the Netherlands at the University of Maastricht and a second at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on a Killam Fellowship.
