The kids will be alright: Q&A with translator and TEDx organizer Kristine Sargsyan

Thu-Huong Ha:

So you hope to reach young people in Armenia.
Yes. As a parent you have to think about your kid and other kids. Recently there was a program on TV discussing environmental issues in Armenia. My son watched it, then he went to his room and started crying. He said, “I hate people because they do so much harm to our Earth. How are we going to change things?” I thought, What are we doing for our kids?
Actually my son is famous! In Armenia everybody knows he’s the reason I started TEDx. On the way here I was stopped in the airport by a British woman. She said, “Aren’t we friends on Facebook? Aren’t you the mom of this great kid who pushed you to do TEDxYerevan?”
