I thank Jean Stoner, SNDdeN, for the tremendous work she did at the United Nations (UN), and for her mentorship. I begin my new job with great sense of enthusiasm as I move into the future with hope, faith and courage. Though I am aware of my inadequacies and the fear of the unknown, I dare into the future with confidence knowing that I have a multitude of good people behind me. Efforts to effect systemic change at the global level often compares to hauling a huge rock up a steep hill on a rainy day. Therefore, I would heed this wise advice of St. Francis of Assisi: “Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible and suddenly, you are doing the impossible.” Thank you all in anticipation for your future support. I look forward to any suggestions you may have on how the SNDdeN at UN Office can be of better service. Remember, we are all in this together!
