I was born in Beirut, Lebanon and reside in Montreal, Canada. My roots are from Western Armenia, from the region of Ourfa. There has not been one moment in my life that I have not felt my Armenian roots, from the moment I was born till present day. Surrounded by my family and community, being Armenian is a way of life.
I already knew somewhat of what to expect since this was my 4th visit to Armenia. I wanted to learn something new, experience how a landlocked country is thriving and is working to make itself better every day. I wanted to expand my network, meet new people try a new cuisines, and see a different landscape…
My experience here in Armenia was one that I will cherish forever. I met so many wonderful and interesting people from all around Armenia and the diaspora. It was a great learning experience. I have now added to my portfolio a new skill which is organic agriculture — never in a million years would I have thought of doing something in this line of work! The culture and life here was very easy for me to adapt to; I enjoyed it all so much so that it came naturally.
It’s the experience of lifetime! You should not doubt it for ONE second. This is the place to be, to grow, to learn, to explore and to enrich yourself with history, landscapes, music, arts and culture.… You will not be disappointed for one moment!
