When I was accepted into the World Fellows Program, I was serving as a senior law enforcement officer in my country. While my love and passion for law enforcement are incessant, I knew deep down inside of me that my destiny was still being shaped. My time spent in the program interacting with a diverse group of professionals from around the world, students and a world class faculty helped me to crystallize my future and better prepared me for my career in politics where I serve today.
