Nefeterius McPherson is On the Move

My Name is… My name is Nefeterius Akeli McPherson. I was named after the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, who’s name means “the beautiful one has come,” but my dad changed the name a little to make it unique for me.

The reason you are reading about me is…The reason you are reading about me is because I am the press secretary for United States Trade Representative Ron Kirk. Ambassador Kirk is a member of President Obama’s Cabinet and is the chief trade negotiator for the United States. I am a political appointee with the Obama Administration and I am the lead spokeswoman for the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) on issues related to Africa, Europe & the Middle East, Japan, agriculture, intellectual property, labor and our World Trade Organization legal cases.
