Majd Zeidan, a first-year UMaine graduate student, discussed the ongoing conflict and refugee crisis in his home country of Syria on the WZON AM620 Pulse Morning Show today. Listen to the podcast of the interview (link here ).

Zeidan is from Hama, Syria. He entered SPIA’s MA Global Policy program after receiving an MBA from Husson University in May 2015.  During his studies at Husson, Zeidan worked at the Maine International Trade Center in its Future Global Leaders internship program which offers students and young professionals the chance to improve their research and communications skills as they assist local companies with growth in international markets.  Zeidan’s current studies focus on international security and development so that he may someday be able to return to Syria, where his family still lives, and positively impact Syria’s education system and economy.
