Profiles of Distinguished Individuals

This section features profiles of leaders and individuals that I have the honor to work with or collaborated with in the course of my career as an educator, writer, and adviser at the United Nations. The series of profiles aims to inspire students of politics and international relations and be aware of the journeys of these distinguished individuals.
