Wendell’s academic and professional journey is characterised by a willingness to step into the unknown and face new challenges head on. This journey began in 2006 when he accepted a scholarship to pursue studies in Mexico. He later worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs after completing his B.A in International Relations. With his strong command of Spanish and ability to adapt quickly to new environments (cultural and otherwise), he was given the opportunity to work at Grenada’s Embassy in Cuba. In 2015, Wendell retired from the foreign service to further his academic studies. This took him to Australia on another scholarship. Since that time, he has completed a Master’s in Diplomacy and Trade and is currently working part time as a Teaching Associate while pursuing a PhD in the Department of Management at Monash University.
