About:

There’s such a good proverb. ’’If you have not given anything good to others, it means you haven’t learnt any kind of thing’’. This expression has become a slogan to move forward in my life and in any sphere of activity, whether it will be in my work place or in social activities.I started to participate in youth meetings and events, because I just liked it! Later I understood that this field became part of my life and since 2013 I conduct trainings and youth events.My moto is never giving up.

Sofya Piradyan has 7 references for past work as a trainer.
