Star Of Armenia Shining In Shanghai

Astrid Poghosyan from Armenia never knew where her life’s journey would lead, she just knew she loved music. When she applied for a musical scholarship program abroad, China was the only country that was accepting foreign students at the time. And her reaction? Not “Oh my God, it’s so far!” Not “But I don’t speak Chinese!” It was simply, “Hey mom, I’m going to China!”


China gave her a chance. She jumped on it, and she’s been building a life for herself here ever since. She shared a bit of her life working for the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.


Astrid just goes to show, you don’t have to be Chinese to have a China Dream.
