Repat Armenia hosted its sixth ‘’Ask Me: Live Q&A’’ event on April 29th. Our guest was Tatevik Revazian, a repat from Denmark and the Chair of Civil Aviation Committee at the Government of the Republic of Armenia. Through a live feed, our followers were able to connect with her directly, asking questions in real time about repatriation, life in Armenia and professional integration.

Tatevik was born in Yerevan and moved to Denmark when she was 5 years old. It was not until September of 2017 that she finally repatriated to Armenia: ‘’I remember the first time I thought about repatriation back in 2010, when I was doing the Birthright Armenia programme; since then, I’ve been very involved in Armenia, expanding my network and truly getting to know the country, the challenges, the opportunities’’.
Tatevik worked as the Director of Global Partnerships at FLYR Inc., a Silicon Valley data science company that leverages the power of machine learning to develop pricing systems for airlines. Thanks to her efforts, in 2017 FLYR partnered with Armenian IT company ‘’Volo’’ and opened its branch in Armenia.
She is the co-founder of ‘’airesvalley’’, a team of professionals in aerospace, education, and sustainability serving three fields of knowledge: startups, students, and international development work.
Tatevik is also an Awesome Foundation Trustee, which is a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1000 at a time. Each fully autonomous chapter supports awesome projects through micro-grants, usually given out monthly. These micro-grants, $1000 or the local equivalent, come out of pockets of the chapter's "trustees" and are given on a no-strings-attached basis to people and groups working on awesome projects.
