"My replacement has already been chosen, I leave on July 16th, she comes in around 3 weeks later, she's awesome, you're gonna love her and then we hope to hear an announcement sometime soon about an ambassador because it's about time that Belize had an ambassador, I've been very fortunate to get to fill the role as Charge' the whole time but we should hear an announcement sometime before long about an ambassador."
