What is your most embarrassing moment at Union High School? After Psychology class, I ended up “losing balance” in the hall and hitting my head. A visit to the ER and first stitches aren’t bad examples of American experience, are they?
What is your favorite memory from high school? Powder Puff game for a girl who had never seen American football and knew nothing about it, playing football and winning with the team is a great memory from senior year.
My biggest pet peeve is: When people chew with their mouth open and make noises.
Who are the most influential people in your life? My parents and my best friend. Worldknown people: Steve Jobs and Anne Frank.
What will you miss most about high school? I will miss my new friends, my extra-curricular activities, hard practices and pride for results, the U-Knighted Spirit.
Where do you see yourself in 20 years? In a huge medical clinic in my country, in Germany, or US as a doctor.
What is the best thing about being a senior? You realize now how responsible the next stage of life that is waiting for you.
What are your post-high school plans? Go back to my country, apply to Yerevan State Medical University, use my American experience and improve leadership skills to make a change in my community.
Your best advice to underclassmen? Step outside of your comfort zone and try new things without fear of failure. Ever tried? Ever failed? Try again, fail better.
