Life has been very different for me since moving to America. I must say, that I have enjoyed my time here very much and I really could not imagine moving back to Armenia after finally getting adjusted to life here. There are so many more things to do and for the most part, everyone has been wonderful to me so far. This country is so diverse and there is so much culture when you know where to look for it and I really appreciate that fact.
Time For Change
Back when I lived in Armenia, my life started off pretty bleak. My parents were poor and there really was not much hope for kids in my situation in the town that I grew up in. After getting into some trouble a couple of times and having really no direction in my life at all, I had a sort of epiphany when I was around 18 years old and knew that it was time for me to make a change for my life if I wanted any kind of future.
This is where SPITAK came in and I can honestly say saved my life. I never in a million years thought that I would be able to see myself volunteering for absolutely anything, let alone doing something as important and rewarding as working for a search and rescue organization. It was such an eye opening experience and immediately changed my entire outlook on life.
