Hayk Makiyan

“Eccentric philosopher, poet, hero and gentleman, Savinien Hercule de Cyrano Bergerac… Who was everything and only… Nothing.”

These lines by Edmon Rostan are not about me, but there are commonalities.

YSU Faculty of Geography and Geology, Department of Geography, compulsory military service in the middle of education (excellent badge of the army, senior military rank).

Departure from the country, long journey, searches (during that time I managed to work as a builder, cook, entrepreneur…).

At the age of 24, I returned to Yerevan, music, viola. At the age of 25, I entered the Yerevan State Conservatory. Together with conservatory friends we formed the Velvet string quartet and created the Ad Libitum student initiative of free artists.

Upon graduation, summing up all the inclinations, new inner needs, and aspirations, I reached a conclusion – journalism, “a profession that will keep you young and rebellious for the rest of your life, so long as you dare to pose the questions that make your hands sweat and your heart race.” (Jorge Ramos).

In this new path, in the uncertainty of experiments and search, the opportunity to study at the Hetq Media Factory seemed like a lighthouse, “something you really want happens.”
