I came to Armenia from Paris, which is my home for already 9 years. Culturally I am quite mixed as apart from France my background covers my birth country Estonia, but also Denmark and Belgium. As a result, I am quite multilingual which I consider an infinite work in progress and thus always happy to take up a new alphabet.
While my professional experience covers private sector, intergovernmental affairs (partially civil society) and recently also academia, I am striving to realize my potential to the fullest in the area of multistakeholder policy-making. I am passionate about inclusive policy roundtables as I truly believe in their added value for participatory democracy.
Within the framework of iGorts, I was invited to join the Ministry of High-Tech to contribute to the national innovation policy rdevelopment through the analysis of available portfolio evaluation models as well as coordination mechanisms.
I truly hope that my contribution will meet the need of the ministry in question as well as allow me to grow like I always do it outside of my comfort zone, but this time in the country of my origin Armenia. To sum up, I'd quote Anais Nin as it describes me the most: " Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage."
