Armenian Assembly of America Intern
Last week, the Assembly interns had the opportunity to meet with Armenian Assembly of America board member Aram Gavoor, himself an alumnus of the Terjenian-Thomas internship (Class of 2003). Gavoor completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan, went on to receive his J.D. from The George Washington University, as well as an LL.M. from Georgetown University. Mr. Gavoor provided much insight and guidance for our interns who are interested in pursuing law in their career. Being one of the youngest professors in the Washington D.C. area, Gavoor has achieved much in his life at the young age of 34. Being a law professor at The George Washington University, he is able to relate to this generation of bright students.
Meeting with Aram Gavoor at our dorms in Georgetown was a throwback for him to his internship over a decade ago. Gavoor reflected on his experiences working at the Armenian Embassy and then-Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT), always quipping how fast time has gone by since his intern days. Mr. Gavoor left our interns with a couple of thoughts as we approached the end of our summer: to enjoy the age we are at now, and to go do the things we want to do, like traveling to far-away places, all while enjoying the moment.
