The Armenian Assembly of America (Assembly) is excited to welcome its newest intern Kyra Chamberlain, a student from George Washington University (GWU), who will be working with the Assembly’s Government Affairs and Communications departments at its Washington, D.C. headquarters.
Chamberlain is currently a sophomore studying International Affairs, with a concentration on Eurasian Studies, and a Music Minor. Her primary subjects of interest include history, politics, global societies and cultures, music, and languages. Chamberlain is originally from Santa Cruz, California, where she was honored as her high school salutatorian for her academic excellence.
“While working at the Armenian Assembly, I hope to further develop my knowledge of Armenian-American concerns and become an effective advocate on behalf of this community,” Chamberlain said. “I have long been interested in Armenian-American culture and politics in the United States and abroad and am excited to help promote awareness about Armenian identity and interests,” she added.
At her school, Chamberlain is involved in several student organizations and extracurricular activities. She continues her work in advocacy as the Co-Programming Chair of GWU’s Feminist Student Union and serves as the Social Chair for the Russian Speakers Club. Additionally, she performs with the GWU’s Jazz Ensemble as a pianist, and hopes to expand on her musical education by participating in other university vocal and instrumental groups.
