Sevan Ohanian

Name: Sevan Ohanian
Hometown: Rockville, MD
Age: 25
Duration of AVC Service: Sept - Nov 2006

Volunteer worksite: Armenian Tourism Development Agency (Armenia Info)

Tasks included: Writing a guidebook on the Syunik Region, Helping Coordinate the hosting of 172 French Tourism Representatives and Journalists on a familiarization trip (pictured with co-workers, awaiting the arrival of the French Delegation at Zvartnots Airport), Writing various speeches and letters for the Minister and Deputy Minister of Trade & Economic Development

Final Remarks: I don't want to leave. If I had to do this over again, I would have stayed at least 6 months, and spent some time in a village or town outside of Yerevan. The only suggestion I have to AVC is maybe to promote volunteering outside of Yerevan more to potential and current volunteers.
