I am 23 years old and was born and raised in Great Britain. I achieved a BA in History from the University of Sussex before obtaining my graduate diploma and Masters in law. I am currently employed in the social work sector and will commence my formal training as a solicitor in March 2023 in a commercial law firm.
Alongside my professional work, I have been very active in London's Armenian community from a young age. I have been a scout and a leader within Homenetmen London and now play on the HMEM Women’s Basketball Team. I contributed to the Armenian Institute’s publication of “Who are the Armenians”? and now collaborate with the Institute on various educational and cultural events. I also volunteer as a teaching assistant at the Kevork Tahta Armenian Community Sunday School and am a member of London’s Akhtamar Dance Group. During the 2020 Artsakh War, I took part in demonstrations to raise awareness about the conflict and volunteered in packing aid boxes to be sent to the region.
As the Diaspora Youth Ambassador in Great Britain, I will be organizing a number of events throughout the year aimed at strengthening ties between my community, Armenia and Artsakh. These will include repatriation talks, lectures and fundraisers.
