Her dedication and skills have made a tangible difference in the projects she has worked on.

Outside of her professional life, Ani is an adventurer at heart. You can find her hiking and enjoying extreme sports like rope jumping, canyoning, and wild caving. For more relaxing leisure activities, Ani loves experimenting with crafting drinks from food scraps and exploring urban landscapes through walking.
