Bedros has an amazing story. His father was a communist and part of the communist party in Armenia. It was not so much by choice, but by necessity. But, In 1980, his father saw an opportunity and decided to escape his family from communist Russia, who Armenia was under at the time, and flee to the United States. Bedros’s father wanted his family to have opportunity, but more importantly wanted to keep his sons from having to join the communist red army which was required at the time.
So, he found a way to put together $25,000 and escaped to Italy and made their way to the American consulate. Bedros was only 6 years old. They made it to the US 11 days later and settled in southern California…flat broke and not really knowing any English.
As Bedros says, he very quickly became the bread winner for the family at 6 years old…but not in the way you think. All his family members got multiple jobs working for less than minimum wage and Bedros’s job in the evenings was to go to the local grocery store where they dumped the expired food out back in a dumpster. His father would hoist him where he would find food that was still edible for the family.
In the first few years, they lived in 14 different apartments and got kicked out of most of them.
It was the experience of having to persevere and break through resistance that helped give Bedros what he calls the Immigrant Edge. Which he describes as the experiences that help create an almost “suit of armor” that helps you to be able to go through anything because you’ve had to overcome so much to just survive. It’s the ability to break through any adversity that comes your way that gives you a tremendous advantage in the game of life.
