In addition to my studies, I’ve been enjoying dancing while on my Fulbright Program. Not only did I prepare a PowerPoint presentation to talk about the numerous types of Armenian dances and performa solo dance, but I also taught the class about my hometown’s traditional folk dance! I was so happy to share my culture, and we all enjoyed learning and dancing together.

I decided to escape the East Coast cold & spend it in San Francisco, California. I enjoyed exploring the city and seeing the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. I visited Silicon Valley, the world’s technology hub, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Santa Cruz, I then spent New Year’s and Christmas time with my relatives. One of my favorite experiences from the holidays was driving through the most crooked street in the world, Lombard Street.

I visited Portland, Maine in July after camping at China Lake for a week. While camping was wonderful, it was even better to feel Portland’s lively community while enjoying the town. While there, I got to see the ocean and Port Elizabeth’s lighthouse! Plus, I enjoyed some great lobster
