Many people ask me the same question when they meet me, “Why did you choose to major in Political Science?” Well, the answer may surprise you; politics runs in my blood, my father’s side has always been involved in the Armenian community, especially when it comes to the political aspects of what Armenia needs to do to improve the nation political and economically.
It’s one thing to talk politics and it’s another to actually study it. I went to California State University Northridge (CSUN) where I studied Political Science for the past two years. I started in Fall 2010 and completed my Bachelors of Arts in Politics and Government on May 23, 2012. I am the first person in both my mother’s and father’s side to get a degree in this field.
Now it’s one thing to study politics but it’s a different story to experience it. By working at ANCA-Western Region, I have learned that politics is not easy – especially out on the field.
I hope to continue working for the Armenian Cause in the future. Unfortunately, I can’t predict where my future will take me but I know that expanding my education hasn’t come to an end just yet.
