Tolerance, adaptability, versatility, assimilation, and perseverance have all been enhanced in me through decades of expatriate life abroad. An experience-schooled wisdom prevails in my interactions and intercommunications with the most diverse of populations. Through their trying and proving in diverse, international environments, my perception has been illuminated, my instincts quickened, my aptitudes practiced . Ineluctably, all of my triumphs have been due largely to the international consciousness that now resides permanently within me. Whatever the challenge, the differing hues of diversity only render the end result more colourful, more flavourful, more precise.
