US Senate confirms Michelle Kwan as US ambassador to Belize

Posted: Friday, September 30, 2022. 7:42 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Yesterday, the US Senate confirmed Michelle Kwan to serve as ambassador to Belize.

Kwan is a former Olympic figure skater and longtime Democratic activist.

According to CNN, Kwan skated through the chamber’s confirmation process with a voice vote.

The State Department said that “Kwan’s extensive work experience at the U.S. State Department in public diplomacy and youth outreach and her work with non-profit organizations combined with her strong management and business skills make her a well-qualified candidate to be the U.S. Ambassador to Belize.

Last year Kwan said that she was honored by the nomination. “If confirmed, I will be very proud to serve my country,” Kwan said. “Belize is full of incredible history and culture and has been a tremendous partner to the United States. I look forward to working with the Belizean government on economic issues, to put an end to this pandemic, and to address the root causes of migration.”

Carlos Moreno was the last US ambassador to Belize.
