Asbarez has been part of my daily life since I was eleven years old when my family immigrated to the United States from Lebanon. As a mother of three school age children, two in medical school and one in high school, I recommend that you write stories regularly about the importance of higher education. We all know the road to success is education, but it is also important that we understand that when we become successful as an individual we are representing our small community to the world.
We need to have more Armenian American doctors, engineers, inventors, television and film makers, heads of industry, reporters, journalists, educators, professors, lawyers and politicians. We must be in the forefront of policy and decision making in all aspects of life. We must encourage our youth to strive for the best they can be.
I am proud to say there already are many such people and I applaud Asbarez for recognizing these high achievers who are setting great examples for the next and future generation.. I suggest you dedicate a section to acknowledge those Armenian Americans who have made and are making a difference in all fields of life.
I congratulate Asbarez on it’s first 100 years and wish for another 100 great years.
