Finding Roses in the Desert of Amman

Hi all! We’re Brittany & Karina. Ready to take on a semester in Jordan? If that means having our bellies full with Jordanian delicacies, traveling through the beautiful desert and serving here at Holy Land Designs, you bet!

To quickly introduce ourselves, here are some fun snip-bits about us:


My name is Brittany, and I rock at the game Two Truths and a Lie:

  1. I have eaten crocodile
  2. I have almost been killed by a giraffe
  3. I have ridden an ostrich

I am a junior at Palm Beach Atlantic University and am studying Cross-Cultural Studies and Exceptional Student Education.

#1 is a lie; did you guess it?


My name is Karina.

The desert is my home both here in Jordan and back in Utah, United States.

I am likely to be found backpacking, gardening or climbing the red rocks in southern Utah.

I am studying Global Development, Photography and Art History at Seattle Pacific University.


We will be interning at Holy Land Designs this fall, helping with visual communications, design and inventory. Our desire is to keep developing relationships with the loving, talented women who work to make the beautiful products at Holy Land Designs. These women truly are some of the most radiant roses we have found in our adventures in the desert of Amman. Check back in with our blog to hear about the many stories yet to be shared over tasty meals here at Holy Land Designs!
