I am a Graduate Student at the University of Richmond in the Master of Liberal Arts Program with a focus in Armenian Church studies as a part of my independent research.
Prior to my master's program at UR, I studied at St. Nersess Armenian Seminary in Armonk, NY where I was learning about the Armenian Church and its important elements; history, theology, linguistics, music, preaching, and practicum. By the end of my three years, I received a certificate in Armenian Church Studies and was ordained to the Diaconate.
I complete my Bachelor of Arts Degree in History at Virginia Tech in 2016 where my focus was on Armenian History in my research seminar courses that that the Virginia Tech Department of History offered.
I taught ESL as a volunteer to the seminarians at the Armenian Seminary Holy Etchmiadzin in Armenia. It was a rewarding experience and I learned a lot from my students and loved helping them improve their English speaking skills.
I have also served as an instructor at St. Vartan Camp; teaching Armenian language, and dance.
I am passionate about helping students because I love seeing students progress in their studies and it will be beneficial for them as well.
