I’ve got the chance to see the new Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait up close. This was during the launching of Gracia Amor’s book, Global Filipino bloggers . He’s the one who handed to me over the certificate from Amor’s book launch and signing.
Ambassador Renato Villa is also an OFW earlier in his career.
Before he became a diplomat, our new Ambassador had worked as an OFW in Jubail, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. He worked as a technical writer at Saudi Petrochemicals.
As a diplomat, Ambassador Villa were assigned in countries like UAE and Jordan.
He was also assigned in Malaysia — the most populous Muslim country in the world. A country of more than 255 million and home of around half a million Filipinos.
