This engagement of the court legal process with the socially vulnerable cases and the social impact that resulted from it helped shape her career vision. She graduated with a Professional Master’s degree in “International Organizations”, and built her knowledge and skills on maximizing the social impact of CSOs and their sustainability, through the pillars of social interventions and solutions. She holds a Bachelor's degree in Political and Administrative Sciences and a Minor in Law.

Dzovig has work experience with the World Bank’s “R4R” project as the Operations Coordinator, research for improved quality of the Lebanese schools, and the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Education in Beirut, within the “Social and Human Sciences Programme” in the MENA regional implementation.

Born in Beirut, she moved to Armenia early 2019 and collaborated with UNICEF Armenia within the “Together4Armenia” platform, by providing training sessions in several Armenian regions and cities on empowerment, both for Youth and Women, as well as some sessions at Yerevan State University. As a consultant and trainer of Sustainable Development Skills and capacity building for NGOs, she continues to equip and mentor in technical writing of Project Proposal documents, and support high-impact learning and training solutions for empowering CSOs.
