There are a few things that I have done in my life that I can say that I am very and genuinely proud of, and volunteering for SPITAK in my home country of Armenia makes the top of the list.
Memories of a Lifetime
I could write a book about my time working for this great organization and there are people and memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. There have been few things in my life that have been as rewarding and satisfying as the work I did and what I have learned from SPITAK.
When I lived in Armenia, I didn’t have that much of a future ahead of me and lived in a very poor part of the country. When I was around 18 or 19 I decided that if I didn’t start making some changes in my life, I was going to wind up on the streets or in jail and one night I made a promise to myself to change the direction I was going in and to try and make a difference in this world.
I had heard about the organization before, but didn’t have much experience in what they were all about but I decided to go in and see what I could do for them anyways. After months of training and learning from some of the nicest people I have ever met in my life, I was brought on board and made a part of their volunteer rescue team and I would love to share some of the experiences I had during my time.
