My Homeland called me on a mission.
When I got a call from the State Department last September, I realized that life could still surprise me. The procedure was long and took seven months, and it was even more difficult that I could not share this news with those around me at that time. Just quietly prepare.
I would consider for a long time whether I am worthy of this honor. However, I accept this as a mission and I am happy to give the Homeland the experience and skills I have gained over my life, serving in the area I know best. Thank you to everyone we have walked this road with. I will be happy if we can stay friends and continue working.
