WATERTOWN — This summer, the Armenian Mirror-Spectator has had two interns in its offices, Nicholas Zoraian and Suren Mkrtchyan.
Zoraian is currently participating in the Armenian General Benevolent Union Summer Internship Program in Boston, and came to the newspaper through it.
A native of Allendale, NJ, Zoraian, 21, has two siblings. He is a rising senior at High Point University in North Carolina, where he studies sports communications and journalism.
He hopes to one day work for a big sports network such as ESPN as a sports talk show host.
“I am very passionate about journalism, so interning for the Mirror-Spectator has been an amazing and extremely enlightening experience. I have learned a lot here about editing, writing, and so much more. The Mirror-Spectator has really helped me get a better understanding of how the world of journalism works. I am very grateful to the AGBU and to the Mirror-Spectator for giving me this opportunity.”
He recently wrote a feature story about the Armenia-based car hailing service, GG, and is working on a video report.
