Conservative perceptions in Armenia on one’s educational and professional path have become outdated with the development of new opportunities and advancements in almost all career fields.
Elen Harutyunyan, a Law student, talks about how integrating and normalizing new concepts and practices in Armenia may be more motivating for students in Armenia. She demonstrates it through a personal story about a gap year, elaborating the idea that it is possible to succeed by just taking it slow. Elen is studying law at French University in Armenia.
She loves discovering the diversity of life, getting acquainted with
the peculiarities and values of different social groups, thinking of possible solutions to the problems we face each day, and doing my best, especially among youth, to raise awareness. It’s her
passion to see in each individual the power, the potential of making a positive change.
She is interested in leadership, traveling, human rights,
crosscultural education, art festivals/expositions and cinematography. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
