May issue of Inside the Middle East show on CNN hosted by the new lebanese anchor Reema Maktabi featured Jordan University and three of its promising students; Suleiman Arabiat majoring Mechatronics Engineering, Rana Al-Sharif and Haneen Amireh majoring English Literature.
When I first heard that Reema Maktabi had just made her way to the CNN, hosting a show that highlights different aspects of the Middle East present and future developments and aspirations, I was happy and anxious to see what could she do to improve and add to this particular show, regarding her journalistic journey that I have been impressed with for a while now. I was proud as well to know that my dear university will be the topic of this month's issue!
While watching the show I couldn't help but to comment on some points starting with the questions directed to the students, I felt like they were too general, shallow and somehow irrelevant to each other, for a five minute interview about a subject as important and diverse as university life especially in the ME region, the questions could have been more specific and coherent with a clear image and message to deliver. As for the students I wished they were more professional and intact in presenting themselves, the obstacles they face and the future they are looking for!
