Nensi MKRTCHYAN, Armenia
PROJECT: MEntor – Me as a mentor

Education aficionada who is interested in youth and non-formal education, community problems and their solutions. Due to two non-governmental organisations that she has founded in Armenia, one in 2019 (Volunteam) and in 2021 (Erasmus Student Network Yerevan) students and volunteers and the youth, in general, are being informed on different volunteering and EU-funded opportunities.

Nensi has been a researcher on the topic of “Extracurricular Activities in Higher Education: Challenges, Perspectives, Armenia and EU Practices” supported by Eurasia Partnership Foundation-Armenia, CRRC Armenia and Restart Foundation.

Nensi holds a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the French University in Armenia, in a partnership with Jean Moulin Lyon 3 University (France) and has studied Political and Social Sciences at Charles University (Czech Republic) within “The Fund for American Studies”. Currently, she is enrolled in an Advanced Master’s programme of European Interdisciplinary Studies at the College of Europe in Natolin (Poland).

It has been a goal of mine for a long time to be granted with this opportunity of finally being selected as a Civil Society Fellow. Indeed, the topic of mentorship for me has been so important that due to the Eastern Partnership Civil Society Fellowship I could raise the importance of it and be helpful to the future-to-be mentors. I am also very much looking forward to supporting the upcoming cohorts of the Fellowship Programme and share the expertise I collect throughout my fellowship project.” – Nensi MKRTCHYAN.
