Advice for a Career in International Diplomacy:
“Don’t be afraid to put yourself out of your comfort zone and to test your own limits; you’re likely to pleasantly surprise yourself with the self-discoveries you’ll make. It is also equally, if not more, important to be respectful of the culture and norms of the place you find yourself working in and to be open and empathetic to the differences you may see around you.”
