VSU assistant professor  Gayaneh Matinyan delivered a speech at  the American Corner of Vanadzor  in the framework of  “VAC TALKS” project on 29.1.2019 

One of the innovative lecturers of Vanadzor State University,   assistant professor  at the Chair of Foreign Languages Gayaneh Matinyan delivered an impressive speech on such a thought-provoking topic as “How to Stay Curious and Live Your Life to the Fullest” at the American Corner  on 29 October, 2019.

Starting with the origin   of the word “curiosity”, which has both positive and negative connotations,  her speech aimed at discovering the   steps that help us  stay curious and interested throughout our lives. One of the biggest threats that one must be beware of, according to Mrs Matinyan,  is the deceitful assumption that  “he/she knows everything” or  “that he knows enough to stop learning”. She  called it fossilization, i.e. the closing of mind to new information.  The speaker then  presented her tips on  how to stay curious and  engaged in life , how to master  such “soft  skills”  as curiosity and creativity through different hobbies and activities , and also  how to develop our natural curiosity and  desire to learn, like children, who are born eager to learn.

At the end of the talk, Mrs.  Matinyan summarized her ideas in this amazing  Steve Jobs quote, “Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
