"Anna was invited as an expert in the process of developping the first local level youth policy in the country - being one of the most competent persons in the field. Currently we (our partner organizations, such as Gyumri Youth Council) are in the process of lobbying for the policy documents developed by Anna and her colleague - legal expert. I can say that this is a major achievement for not only Anna, but for the whole field of youth work and youth policy in Armenia."
