    Congratulations RitaMae. I just wanted to clarify that the article says for the first time a Belizean will become an international civil servant for an international organization. This is not true, for 10 years I have been an international civil servant with the United Nations as a Belizean and there are many others like me. I have met quite a few of them, who are all employed under their Belizean nationalities. There are a lot of Belizeans at home and abroad making us proud.

    Congratulations are in order for Ms. Hyde… well deserving and the opportunity of a lifetime.

    However kindly note that she is not the first Belizean to win a contract as an international civil servant with an international organization. Belize has a slate of people currently and who previously served in similar capacities across the world. …..
