Being an ambassador requires more than a love for your own country, it also requires a love for other cultures. Ambassador Farid Abboud has always had a love for other cultures as well as a strong love for his own. As a representative of his country to other countries, he is able to provide a connection between the many cultures being represented while immersing himself in the country he is living in. His degree in philosophy helped him learn to communicate, and his degree in history helped him to understand the current climate of his own country and the ones he has served in. His multilingual abilities have allowed him to communicate clearly as well.
