I am 27 years old. I was born in Armenia, at the age of 13 I moved to Gothenburg, Sweden. I graduated from the Faculty of Political Science of the University of Uppsala with a Bachelor's degree in Developmental Sciences. I have also studied the sciences of peace, conflict, gender and democracy.
For two years I worked for the Swedish State Migration Agency as an investigator, case manager and decision maker in different cities and departments. Currently I work in the municipality of Uppsala as secretary of the labor market. Having been the coordinator of the United Nations Women Sweden organization in Uppsala for a year, I gained significant organizational experience.
I am a member of the board of the centre for coordination of Armenian Unions in Sweden and the coordinator of the working group on member unions. I appreciate my job at Armenian Consta NGO, where I act as a program coordinator and board member. I am also the secretary of the Armenian Cultural Centre in Uppsala.
Becoming the first Diaspora Youth Ambassador in Sweden, I will implement programs aimed at the preservation of Armenian identity and repatriation.
