I recently went to Armenia with WPI and partnered with Alzheimer's Care Armenia and Orran to incorporate games into a Memory Club program which aimed to improve cognitive function and reduce anxiety in its participants. I am currently employed for my second summer internship in my field of study.

About me

When I went to Armenia, I was met 15 elderly people who are participants of our program. Despite the fact that we were never able to talk to each other, they touched my heart with their ability to try new things, welcome strangers into their everyday lives, and make an improvement for themselves at an older age. We made them feel loved and appreciated. If there was any chance that I could do that again, I would take it in a heartbeat.
