Lake Forest College

Sophomore ‘2020

International Relations and Public Relations Double Major

My name is Hakob Parsamyan. I am a freshman student at Lake Forest College from Yerevan, Armenia. I have previously graduated the UWC Atlantic College in the United Kingdom, earning an International Baccalaureate Diploma. I am planning to double major in International Relations and Philosophy. I have always been actively undertaking community service by volunteering at schools and various other educational and non-educational institutions. I am a senator of the Class of 2020 in the Student Government. I have an active membership and various leadership positions in many groups and organizations on campus, including, TEDxLFC (Director & Lead-organizer), Mock Trial, Model United Nations (Vice-president), the Intervarsity Christian service (Leadership group), Concert Choir (Choir leader), Student Senate (Chair of the Class Committee) and Housing Advisory Board. My future plans lead me to pursue a JD Law degree. My aspirations towards Law and International Relations are aimed to create a more peaceful and sustainable world. I believe that unity and collaboration are potentials to change the world.
