I became a diplomat quite by accident. Once upon a time, I was searching the internet for a new job. I was living in Nevada, so I was looking for State of Nevada jobs. I typed in http://www.state.gov, and ended up at the State Department website. The more I read about the jobs available, the more I was convinced that this is what I should be doing. A few years later, a few tests later, I was hired! Now, after six plus years and three plus tours later, I’m so much happier. Yo ho, yo ho, a diplomat’s life for me.
