Bio
Over the last nine years, I have been engaged in non-formal education and worked at all levels (local, regional, and national) to ensure the evidence-based promotion of inclusive education in Armenia. Initially, I have been working with marginalised groups of people with disability and children from very poor families and was running the local day-support centre for people with disability.

After that, I joined UWC Dilijan College as Youth and Community Project Coordinator and took responsibility for involving local youth in all events which happened at our school and beyond it. Since 2019 I am coordinating CAS program in UWCD. I am responsible for internal events and community relations.
