In my new role, I will do my utmost to support the Central African Republic, which still has to cope with a multitude of economic, cultural and social problems, on its path that began with the election of President Touadéra.
My goal is to use my international network and relations to help make the country safe and worth living for its people. I am convinced that the refugee crisis in Europe can only be resolved by significantly improving living conditions in the regions and countries affected by the crisis.
There are two communication vehicles that are understood all over the world and that are accepted around the world regardless of religion, skin color, and social class. They are music and sports. I am very familiar with the second language.
