Acceptance speech Dr. Carissa Etienne Acceptance speech Dr. Carissa Etienne

As I approached this room today, my immediate emotion was thank God it is over. However, the reality is that it has only just begun!  Today I am humbled. Humbled by the faith you have shown in me to lead this great Organization. For a woman from one of the smallest nations in the world to be elected to the helm of our distinguished and beloved PAHO is truly an honor and a privilege for me and my country, Dominica. I pledge to you that I shall do my best to live up to what I know are your high expectations.
