The Will Guides the Person and Helps You not to Give Up: Gevorg Harutyunyan
We continue to present clever, purposeful, versatile, young people at Eritasard.am’s rubric “Guidelines for Success”, who do remarkable jobs in their young age. This time our guest was Gevorg Harutyunyan. And in what spheres our guest is engaged, Gevorg will tell himself.

A clear decision on choosing a profession ...

I still studied in pre-school grades when I made a decision to study psychology. In fact, I had great love for art. I was admitted to the Armenian State Pedagogical University after Khachatur Abovyan, but soon I decided to continue my education at Yerevan State University. I began to specialize in social psychology and art psychology. I chose cinema psychology as a diploma work.

Dublin Film Academy ...

2016 I decided not to miss the chance to be a masterpiece in the film industry. I started studying the field for a few months. These months are very important in my life as I gained knowledge, skill, experience, new acquaintances, friends, and most importantly, self-esteem.

Young Leaders’ School ...

I was 19 when I decided to go to the Young Leaders School. The format of the school was very attractive for me. I came to know many interesting people with whom we have a relationship, and sometimes we also cooperate. In general, I attach importance to formal and informal education as they complement each other by giving knowledge and experience.

Short movies shooting ...

To be honest, at first, my interest in movies was at the hobby level, which eventually turned into a professional interest. Since 2013, I started making short films, but they were not just movies, as had clear target groups, messages.

I have about 10 short films as well as experimental works that I have presented in different countries. By the way, when the Oscar-winner Terry Jorr announced a contest in Armenia, I found myself in the final round. In the film I presented human rights issues within 1 minute.

Head of “GaragErasmus4Yerevan” organization and head of “Edu VanHub”" educational program ...

In 2017, I saw a competition announcement on the web and decided to go. In 2018 within the framework of the project, I was invited to Milan where I had to make a presentation. I took the 3rd place in the competition, and I would like to mention that this program (Edu VanHub), which I presented, has become a reality today. In fact, the program received a lot of positive feedback in Milan, which, of course, inspired me, and that enthusiasm was a stimulus to make it real.

After returning to Armenia, I started working on the project to make corrections, amendments, and so on. During that time, I left for Austria for 10 months to work. But I did not give up the idea of making it real. Frankly speaking, it was in my mind since 2015. When I returned to Armenia from Austria, the Milan organizers contacted me. Head of “GaragErasmusFond” company suggested opening a branch office in Armenia, I would be the president of the company. And I was given a great opportunity to implement projects. I decided to accept the proposal, becoming the founder-president of “GaragErasmus4Yerevan” Armenian branch.

A great love towards travel ...

I love traveling very much, and it does not matter what level of development this country has, whether it is in a war or peace. I have been in more than 30 countries. But in reality I consider myself a traveler, not a tourist, because I am interested in every detail. There are plans to travel to Asian and European countries soon.

The Pledge of Success ...

The Will ... In fact, a lot has been summed up in this word. It is a great system that guides human beings. That is, every man wakes up every morning and leaves the worst of last day’s events and moves forward. Generally, it is important that the will be on the high-level bar to lead to success. The will helps not to give up.

There is no easy way, it is always rocky. Many people have succeeded, become known, but we all know what a difficult way they have overcome.
