Before coming to Armenia, I was unsure of the expectations I would have upon arrival. I honestly did not expect to fall in love with it the way I did. I absolutely adored everything from my internship, the people, the views, and the food. I honestly could not find anything about this trip that I did not enjoy. Maybe the weather was hotter than I expected, but besides that everything I saw and learned in Armenia was memorable and something I’ll cherish forever. The conference had also quickly become a significant part of this experience, as I had met many people that I would have never otherwise met. I also learned that presenting at a conference is not as scary as I had thought it was. Out of all the experiences I had in Armenia, my absolute favorite was learning and experiencing a new culture. I loved traveling and learning about the various monasteries in Armenia, as many of them had a certain uniqueness about them. My internship had also quickly become another amazing aspect of this trip, as I learned so much in a short amount of time. I learned so much from the individuals I met at my internship. Overall, I will cherish the times I had in Armenia, and I cannot wait to return!
