A ‘Humbled’ Carol Fulp Explains Her Presidential Appointment To The UN
Carol FulpBy anyone’s estimation: Carol Fulp is a heavy hitter. But for all her accomplishments – Carol is extraordinarily unassuming, modest and humble. For instance: As a long time community and political activist, during big campaigns, she’s had the opportunity to meet countless high-profile candidates. During the 2008 presidential campaign, she encountered then-Senator Barack Obama on a number of occasions. Yet – taking nothing for granted – each time she met him she would say, “Hi, I’m Carol Fulp from Boston.” To which he would say, “I KNOW who you are.” That’s why last September it was no surprise to learn that President Obama nominated her as part of a group of four U.S. delegates to the United Nations. After being confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Carol took a temporary leave from her current job as a senior vice president at John Hancock and assumed her administrative post, choosing to focus on issues that further the economic advancement of women in Asia, Africa and the Caribbean.
