If you ask 17-year-old Asatur from the city of Tumanyan to describe his life in two words, he will do it in three: Rubik’s Cube, cinema, and video editing.
But his interests extend far beyond these hobbies. So far, he has managed to complete 6 SMART programs (Programming, English classes, Performing Arts, Finance, Digital Drawing, and Mechanics). He only regrets that he will no longer be able to participate in the Sound Design program.
Asatur is one of the winners of the FLEX program (Future Leaders Exchange Program) this year and will spend the next academic year in the United States.
His love and interest in Rubik’s Cube started at the age of 10 when his mother gave him his first Rubik’s Cube. Today, he has his own collection of famous cubes.
“I find it a pity that speedcubing isn’t so developed in Armenia, and I have to order every new sample for my collection from abroad,” he says.
