United Nations and United Nations Development Programme
Initially, I worked with the Middle East and Africa Bureaux. While at the Middle East Bureau I drafted the speeches for the Under-Secretaries General, who were tasked with providing updated reports to the various Middle Eastern countries of their respective departments. I also wrote speeches for the Trade Relations office of the Organization for African Unity (OAU). After an initial two years at headquarters, New York, I was seconded by the United Nations to participate in my first overseas assignment, as a member of the diplomatic corps tasked with designing and drafting an all-inclusive constitution for the government of Namibia, Southwest Africa, on the attainment of independence from the Republic of South Africa. I also wrote the initial draft of Resolution 435, tabled at the United Nations Security Council.
On my return from Southwest Africa, I joined the peacekeeping forces (UNEF) on the Israeli/Egyptian Border. Additionally, I taught English as a second language to the Arabic-speaking staff.
On my return to the United States, I became the personal assistant to Bradford Morse, the Administrator of the United Nations Development program. Later I moved to Australia where I completed my Bachelors/Masters degrees. These degrees were taught under the British system, by professors from Cambridge and Oxford, as there was a severe shortage of qualified professors at the time. I obtained a "D" (Distinction) in many of these classes; some were graduate courses taken at undergraduate level. I also had the equivalent of 70 credits in psychology at Bachelors and Ph.D. level
While attending school part-time I also worked for the following
organizations: Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, the Department of
Foreign Affairs (Australia), and the U.S. State Department, American Embassy.
Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet
I drafted speeches for the many representatives visiting foreign countries on
behalf of the Prime Minister. One of the speeches that I drafted was on behalf of
the Prime Ministers representative on the independence of Namibia (1992) as I
had been to the country previously and had taken an active part in the drafting of
Resolution 435 in respect of the independence of Namibia.
Departments of Foreign Affairs
I worked in the Protocol Section of this Department, and was tasked with
translating the French and Spanish credentials presented by incoming diplomats.
In my capacity as the Cultural Affairs Assistant, I was responsible for Ronald
Reagan's "People to People" Program, the State Department's "Voluntary Visitors" program, which arranged exchanges between high-ranking political figures, members of the Judiciary (Supreme Court and the Fulbright student exchange.) Additionally I was tasked with the arrangements for Star Wars Conference in Australia, the American Studies materials provided to Australian Universities, and much of the public relations activities at Canberra.
