Over the course of a decade, Ambassador Moussa lived and worked in three American cities: Boston, Washington, and Phoenix.
In addition to his work with the World Wildlife Fund, Ambassador Moussa has also been a teaching assistant in the African Studies Center at Boston University; research assistant at the Center for International Relations at Boston University, studying the economies of the Pacific Rim; a consultant at JSI/World Education, where he evaluated the BAND AID/LIVE AID philanthropic projects; and a consultant at IFESH (International Foundation for Education and Self-Help) in Phoenix, where he worked on the first African-African American Summit held in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire.
