Aspiring diplomat gaining international experience in Windsor

International experience is valuable for a budding diplomat, says Rozen Omuri.

He already has a degree in political science in his native Albania, but would like to specialize in embassy jobs, and so is pursuing an education in International Relations and Development at the University of Windsor.

“Windsor is ranked high for good universities, and I have friends and relatives who live here,” says Omuri. “So I chose the University of Windsor.”

He is spending the summer brushing up on his communication skills in the English Language Improvement Program.

“I have found it has improved some weaknesses in my English,” he says. “I am learning at a level of detail that has really helped me.”

He admits to being very impressed by his reception in Windsor.

“Canadians are so friendly!” Omuri says. “Even a stranger will say hello passing you in the street.”

The Centre for English Language Development will celebrate international language students and their contributions to campus and community on World Student Day, Friday July 20. UWindsor faculty, staff, and students are invited to join in free activities, entertainment, and a lunch on Turtle Island Walk from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
