Mission achieved! Indeed I believe that I am an example of the successful mission of DIPLO. Today I count as a professional and successful diplomat due to my involvement with DIPLO. Because of the options for online learning I managed to fulfill my dream and obtain my Masters in Contemporary Diplomacy Summa Cum Laude while serving actively in the position of Ambassador of the Republic of Suriname to Indonesia. I got involved and engaged on many important topics, including my favorite Public Diplomacy, with other diplomats of my region and around the world, allowing me to build relations between our developing countries on a personal and at times formal level, with the assistance and support of DIPLO. The courses in Internet Governance did not just lead to a successful completion of the course and knowledge that was useful to me and many around me, not only to me being mentioned as an emerging leader in digital diplomacy, but led me to a position on the board of Multi-Stakeholder Advisory Group (MAG), with the support of DIPLO. As a policymaker in my country I am now much better informed of possibilities for development through innovative, effective and efficient use of diplomacy as well as better connected than most due to my involvement with DIPLO.
So When I say CONGRATULATIONS DIPLO on a job well done and wish for many more to come, it is not just a wish, it is a firm belief and conviction that DIPLO did not just make a huge difference in the direction and quality of my life, not just in the life of many of my fellow students then and now, but DIPLO makes an extraordinary difference in the world of Diplomacy. CONGRATULATIONS!
