Hello, I’m Gayane from Armenia.
I’m a recent graduate in bachelor’s degree and project manager of online educational platform. It looks like I’m part of Generation Z As a kid I’s always fascinated by the technology, computers, phones and later smartphones. In my teenage years it was a trend to be a part of social media (in Armenia there were both Russian and American social media platforms, like ok.ru, vk.com and of course Facebook). So, I was heavily involved in virtual communication platforms.
From high school and in my university years I tried deeply to understand the impact that social media has on me. For many years I was either really addicted to news feeds, or tried to completely abandon me from that. But after some point I started to seriously consider how the overall environment of technology, internet impacts on life. Sometimes I thought that the main problem is in my mindset, but when you find people, communities who share the same concerns, you feel connected and Humane tech community is one of them.
I’m still addicted to social media platforms , but in many ways I perceive information differently. Today it’s more than important to be really conscious about your own behavior, so that we control technology, not technology us.
Hope to find interesting and fascinating discussion
