“It has always been, and still is important, for Armenian women to enter STEM-related studies. We never had as many opportunities as we do now. We have to use these opportunities. In the field of STEM, it is crucial to have new ideas and different ways of thinking. That’s one of the reasons that women should be included in this field if organizations want to achieve great results. Underestimating women‘s abilities is still present in our society today. I am lucky that my family has always supported me in whatever I wanted to do, but I would always be asked in the community  “Are you sure you can do that?“ The scholarship support will certainly help Armenian women to believe in themselves and use their full potential to succeed.”
