Q: What is your life philosophy?
Mindset is crucial. Honor your abilities and bet on yourself. Practice makes progress (not perfect) so embrace the journey and have fun. When things are hard, harness your resilience and empathy, it’s time to turn ON when you hear NO. We live in a loud world where often, things appear harder than they are. I enjoy deconstructing complexity to unravel the core, thereby discovering a path forward.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being Armenian?
The culture and the value we place on faith, family, friends and community. Throughout my travels, I love meeting Armenians all over the world. It’s endearing to know that we can find a welcoming Armenian community anywhere in the world. Oh and Manti, yummy!
