Do you have pets? Mary loves cats and dogs! She is very close with her family, and although she is not an artist herself, most of her family members are very artistic. Her grandfather even plays in a rock band! Perhaps it is her grandfather’s influence that makes Mary so passionate about listening to music. She feels it helps her relax and inspires her. Her city may also contribute to her interest in art and music as it is considered an important cultural center in Armenia with many singers, painters, musicians, and sculptors. Mary’s interests are diverse, though. She enjoys mathematics and looks forward to a career in technology. She feels that a profession in this field will allow her to contribute to making a better Armenia in the future. She appreciates the opportunities the FLEX program offers to students and feels she will become “more confident and smarter” as a result. She understands the importance of studying hard and not giving up when things become challenging. Mary is excited to “see the world” and share her culture with the people she meets in the U.S., while at the same time learning all about the American way of life.
