About

I’m just another blogging ELO in the U.S. Foreign Service. After being twice stopped by the FSWE (back in the days when it was the FSWE), I decided to give the written exam and the dream job one more try in 2008. I took the FSOT in July of 2008 and passed the Oral Assessment in March of 2009. 6 years after my first attempt to join the Foreign Service I finally started my dream job in September of 2009 as a member of the 148th A-100 class.This blog is primarily intended as a means for me to keep friends and family up to date as I travel the world. I arrived in May of 2010 at my first “overseas” post in the exotic and far flung locale of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico (it’s 5 minutes over the border). Follow my adventures as I wrangle my kitties, navigate this new lifestyle, and gorge myself on delicious burritos.

  • Hi! I’m really interested in your experiences as a female junior FSO. I would love to ask you some more questions about your journey, in particular.
