People Who Studied Abroad #703:
Maz Jobrani, comedian
Born in Iran, raised from age 6 in the United States
While pursuing his B.A. degree in political science and Italian at UC Berkeley, he studied abroad on the EAP Italy program.
"One of the best years of my life was when I took advantage of the Education Abroad Program here at Cal, and I went to Italy for a year. EAP baby! Travel, see the world, it’ll open your eyes, it’ll help you find what it is you love to do. Another thing that traveling does: It makes you realizes there are good people everywhere. It is not what you see on television.”
