Before moving to Jerusalem seven months ago, I attended Blair and was a member of Silver Chips's photography staff. I now live at the peak of the Mount of Olives on property owned by the Lutheran World Federation, my father's employer. Our house overlooks Jerusalem where I am on the fringe of both Israeli and Palestinian society, with Hebrew University to my immediate north and the Arab town Atour to the south. I attend the Anglican International School of Jerusalem in West Jerusalem where, similar to Blair, a vast array of cultures is represented in the student body.
I am Sebastian Brown, and I have been living on the Mount of Olives inEast Jerusalem for the first two months of an expected two years. Threemonths after my father moved to our new home to immediately beginworking, my mom, my brother and I set off for our destination at thecompletion of my junior year at Montgomery Blair High School. Iintend to complete my senior year here in Jerusalem, possibly stayingan extra year before going to college, while my parents intend to stayhere anywhere from three to nine years.
