Haykuhi Safaryan, BS Computer Science ’22

“I think that in today’s up-to-date highly developed world when technologies are developing with every second, if someone wants to have a promising career, they must enter the STEM field. There are ample opportunities. A STEM degree is like a magical key which can open any closed door. The biggest problem that a young girl entering the STEM sphere can face is the stereotypes that our society has. People are skeptical about girls’ abilities studying and succeeding in STEM. I can confidently state that girls are as talented in the sciences as boys. There are so many intelligent, qualified, girls who want to study at AUA but do not have the resources. With scholarship support, more girls will feel empowered to pursue degrees in STEM-related fields.”
