Question: What is your life philosophy? 
BE CONFIDENT! Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be someone we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only when you accept everything you are – and aren’t – that you will truly succeed.
Question: What is your favorite thing about being Armenian?  
Meeting and making connections with other Armenians no matter where I travel to or live in the world. Learning how the Armenian culture has manifested itself around the world – I’ve met Armenians from Spain, Singapore, Italy and so many other places while they may have different experiences than I do, we are always able to find something in common.  The powerful and supportive women I’ve met and share amazing experiences with is something I’m deeply grateful for.
