Congrats... I couldn't agree more with Kristina..

Yet..     I thought I would never find my self in a position like 
this...  to give up and to abandon years of self investment in time and 
(less) money...  ( thanks to the funding programs of ICANN and EuroDIG 
)  and exceptional individuals ...  ( I still think about to whom I 
shall FW or CC this email..  )

People say :  follow your instinct ...  whatever your instinct tells 
you,  that is the right thing to do or to say ..  if you hesitate, the 
calculations starts.... and you do not want to be a part of calculation ...

Well...  my sincere endorsement goes to Fotjon, Maja, Olga, Ola, 
Kristina  ...  I know them all ...   they are the real "veterans" ...

However I can't help my self not to mention that I see 3 ( three ) 
people from Romania ,  2 ( two ) from Albania and 4 people that I hear 
first tine about them ( it is probably me and my ignorance.. )  that are 
selected for,  as Dusan S. would say :   "Being an ambassador is a very 
high and respectful role, and it's a matter of time when we start to 
address to them as "Your Excellency"  and ...I know Marko as well but I 
see him as most effective and productive in the youth program not as an 
Amdasador...  there are steps in life like in education ...  but this 
will also be a good school for him ...

To avoid any confusion about the motives behind this read,  Yes, I did 
apply for the ambassador program !

Just for the younger  members of the community,   ( the new comers )  I 
was involved in the SEEDIG process from the very beginning including the 
first preparatory meeting in Sofia in January 2015 , attended the first 
SEEDIG in May same year in Sofia and all SEEDIG meetings that followed 
in Belgrade, Ohrid and Ljubljana. As a result and my involvement in 
ICANN as of 2010 and the Global IGF including  EuroDIG, today I'm one of 
the founding members and coordinator of the national Macedonian NRI  - 
IGF MKD. http://igfmkd.mk/

Obvioselly, this will  be the first SEEDIG for me to skip, because of 
personal reasons..

And again for the younger  members of the community...  this is a good 
lesson for you that the control is everything , control is power...

However,   It was a great journey ...

Everybody ...  Have a nice life  !!!

Best regards,

Aleksandar Icokaev
