Hello(Բարև), I was born and raised in Yerevan and I'd be happy to introduce you hidden gems of my beautiful city and guide you around Armenia. Thank you!(Շնորհակալություն) I am licensed tour guide since 2015 and I have extensive background and knowledge in the history of Armenia, which dates back to 3,500 B.C. I graduated from the Yerevan State University, majoring in economics and literature, and then pursued my interests in tourism. My education prepared me very well for this profession as a tour guide. 1.Intensive English Certificate - courses 1st and 2nd level; 15/01/2008 - 23/03/2008. 2.Tour Guide Certificate (provider UNHCR; 13/10/2014 - 01/06/2015) Joke - Are you Armenian test? You might be Armenian if. . . • You think that the Armenians invented everything in the world • You feed your grandchildren when they are not hungry • You think Fresno is the capital of California • At meetings, you MUST state your opinion, and it doesn't matter that it is just EXACTLY the same as someone else's who just spoke
