President-Elect Joe Biden nominated Linda Thomas-Greenfield to be U.N. Ambassador.
Thomas-Green served as the Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of African Affairs. Her three-decades long career in the Foreign Service also includes an ambassadorship to Liberia from 2008-2010.
A Louisiana native, Thomas-Greenfield credited her mother for her success.
“My mother taught me to lead with the power of kindness and compassion to make the world a better place,” said Thomas-Greenfield.
