My name is Gassia Samuelian and I am from Beirut, Lebanon.
I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Haigazian University in Lebanon. After graduating, I worked at CreditBank SAL and was an Operations Manager in an e-commerce startup. Simultaneously, I used my skills and training to enhance and develop our family business (ASCO Coffee Mill). In my spare time, I tutored students and volunteered to manage social media accounts for a sports academy.
I embarked on a new journey seeking new challenges and exciting opportunities in a place I always felt I belonged – Armenia. Currently, I am also pursuing my MBA at the American University of Armenia.
I consider myself fortunate enough to be selected as an iGorts fellow and contribute to my homeland's future. I am working at the National Center for Innovation & Entrepreneurship under the Ministry of Economy as an Assistant to the Director.
In my free time, I like to read and exercise.
