Moisey Agasiev, originally Terbagdasaryan. Born in Krasnodar, Russia to an Armenian family. At the age of 10 immigrated to US, specifically Glendale, CO. Didn’t realize there were many Armenians in Colorado until I started working for US Bank in 2017 and met, the now president of AOC, Byuzand Yeremyan. After meeting him I met 4 more Armenians working for the same bank. This is when I got a bit excited to have met “my own people”. Following years after I was able to volunteer at AOC and help with a picnic. Loved it! Then life got in the way and I focused a bit more on my career and self so I stopped helping out. Byuzand approached me once again and this time to help with a concern. So I did. Again, this brought me joy and I, after accepting the invite to joint AOC, joined and happy I’ve done so. Excited to make good friends.
