For the 15th anniversary of DiploFoundation, I would like to share how the numerous courses I have followed since 2008 have helped me on my way to becoming Ambassador of Mauritius to Germany in 2010. I am not a career diplomat – I am actually a marine biologist by profession – but having been an adviser to the Minister of Fisheries and then the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and having been a civil servant myself for some 5 years before that, I had the institutional knowledge required, but with the courses I followed, one thing led to another and my knowledge became much wider. Diplo foundation has played its part in my being elected Ambassador of the year 2013 by the Diplomatic Magazine in Berlin. A big Thank You to all the team of Diplo Foundation.
