“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” -- Maya Angelou

I may have had no control over the many unfortunate events that have happened in my life, but I know I do have control over who I am today and who I would like to become in the future. From October to December it is my honor to be a part ofThe Leon Charney diplomacy program at Florida Atlantic University as the ambassador for the Charney Resolution Center. This is a very big opportunity for me in which I intend to learn as much as I can and have the best possible experience. --Naka Kerba

“I am humbled and honoured to take part in this experience of becoming an ambassador for the Charney Center. Thank you for this once in a lifetime opportunity. By exploring more about the world of diplomacy, I am certain that I can apply the tools that I will learn to my own country and hopefully lead it to change within the eyes of my people.” -- Naka Kerba
