THRIVE is an AIWA-SF April project dedicated to highlighting Armenians who are doing amazing things in their personal and professional lives to better themselves and those around them. These individuals are inspiring, dynamic, innovative and interesting. Today, we feature Alexis (Lex) Najarian, Miss Nebraska USA 2019.
Lex is the current Miss Nebraska USA titleholder. She spreads awareness about Lyme disease as the National Ambassador for the Twin Cities Lyme Foundation. Lex was born and raised in Illinois until she moved to Connecticut when she was 12, then to Nebraska for college when she was 19. She has stayed in Lincoln since graduating with a Bachelors degree in Psychology from the University of Nebraska. You can follow her journey on Instagram @lexnutrifit and @missneusa
Question: What is your favorite thing about being Armenian?
My favorite thing about being Armenian is knowing that there is such a strong and proud community of other Armenians who are incredibly supportive of each other. The food is pretty great too 😉
Question: How has the Armenian culture shaped you?
The Armenian culture has shaped me to always be grateful for the opportunities I have. When you know the history of your ancestors, and learn how they struggled to survive and escape danger, it is easy to appreciate everything life has to offer.
