Garik's story

Garik is 43 years old and is a technician who graduated from Vanadzor State Technical College. As he confessed during his studies, he didn't like his chosen profession and he realized that it was not for him.

The profit from his work enables him to sustain his family. Garik is a famous stylist in Vanadzor city and has many clients and orders.
