Christine is a Biology and Biotechnology graduate from the American University of Madaba.

She has enjoyed volunteering and supporting the community ever since she was a small child. Working with kids and youth has been a pleasure to her, where she has demonstrated a strong commitment to community service by volunteering as a leader in Homenetmen Armenian Scout. In addition, she has been supporting and working with vulnerable groups abroad through Erasmus+ projects.

I am committed to working tirelessly to promote youth empowerment and create lasting change. Together, we can empower young people and shape a brighter future for all”.
