Alina Samuelian was born in Pasadena, California, on April 1st, 1995. She works as a sales representative in her family’s Men’s clothing company and received her Bachelor’s degree in Management from California State University, Northridge. She believes that as human beings we must not only live for ourselves but for others and that it is our duty to help one another and make a difference in the world. She hosts several fundraising events throughout the year with her team to educate and involve the youth in charitable work.
“I began the FLY youth team when I was 18 because I wanted my generation to become aware, get involved and do their part in making this world a better place. Since the start of FLY, my life has never been the same again. I have the chance to fly out to my homeland Armenia multiple times a year, visit the poorest of the poor, witness and feel deeply with their horrific living conditions and have the chance to give back and change lives. Giving hope, joy, and strength to those in need and creating miracles is true happiness and peace like no other. I’m incredibly thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to serve God and His children in dire need. FLY has become my entire life, and I’m committed to serving this cause and doing my part to make an everlasting difference for as long as I breathe.”
