Koryun Aghajanyan: “Everything should be based on sincerity”
Eritasard.am’s "Guarantee of Success" series continues to feature young people who are well read and informed, diligent, and successful. This time our guest is Koryun Aghajanyan. And Koryun will tell us about the spheres of our occupation.

Choice of profession, alternative professions ...

The typical discussions in many families have been in our family, too. I mean about choosing a profession. I think it is the age when you are not in a good state of consciousness, so the guiding advice is very important. My father is an engineer by profession, moreover, most of my friends are IT professionals, so it was possible to understand that the choice of profession would stop in that direction. I decided to follow my family's advice and study at the Armenian National Polytechnic University in the Department of Energetics. Of course, I also had other interests.
I also thought about the Faculty of Philology because I loved reading very much. Besides, I was interested in journalism as well as theatrical work. But finally, I decided to choose the Armenian National Polytechnic University, for which I have never regretted.

Psychology. choice of second profession ...

After graduating from the university two years later, I decided to continue my education, but with a full range of psychology. Since I wanted to study the field completely, I started looking for a suitable institution. Finally I chose the RA Public Administration Academy. In fact, when I look back, I understand that the field has always been of interest to me, but perhaps at the level of subconsciousness. I have always been interested in personality psychology. Moreover, in 2015, I was working on my book, I knew I did not know a lot and needed to study many nuances. At the same time, I made my decision to become a psychologist one night. But my enthusiasm was definitely not accepted. It was understandable to me because the stereotype is that this sphere in Armenia is not developed and maybe it has no tendency of development. But, as I am determined to make my decisions, I moved forward. In this one year, since I have been studying psychology, I understand that I have made the right decision.

Rap and the future creative career ...

I can say with certainty that the best way to get out of psychologically challenging situations was to just write. This idea was further strengthened by this one year when I started studying psychology. I started writing at the age of 14-15. At first they were in the genre of rap, which turned into a song. But I realized that Rap has some limitations.

To be honest, I always try to analyze and understand what the result is. Looking back to the past years, I realize that everything leads to psychology. The rap has positively affected my life because it helped to cope with the problem of speech. That creative process was very important and exciting in my life. But now I'm listening to classic music, Mozart, Vivaldi and others.

Following you ...

One event in my personal life subjugated me to write. I was finally convinced that writing was a great support. It was a period when the book "Following You" was created, the only one printed. It is a collection of 4-month-old thoughts in the form of a novel. Is it possible to tell the reality, what has happened to me? Frankly speaking, the choice of the title is very difficult. There were several options, from which it was difficult to make a choice.

The selection of the cover was also not accidental. I had a picture when I was 14 years old. To be honest, I find it difficult to remember how this picture appeared to me, but it was symbolic.

Upcoming Plans ...

There are many plans to implement in the near future. I am glad that my ideas, when they originate, are not mixed. But it is not connected with the change of the manuscript, but rather to the world outlook. It only has a positive impact. Certainly, I intend to complete a number of works in the form of novels. Any work originates from the emotional experiences. I am generally an emotional person.

Koryun or Kok?

It was probably 9-10 years ago when one of my close friends began to call me Kok. Over time, I realized that I like this version. I love my name, but I prefer Kok. Very few people say Koryun.

Interests and favorite occupation ...

I like chess. I'm also interested in tattoos. In general, it's an art for me. I love music as well. And I always read. Books have been of great importance in my life always. The more I read, the more I understand that I have read only 5%. I love watching movies, most of all documentaries. Recently I watched the film about Einstein's life. It was very interesting.

Guarantee of Success ...

In general I value the sincerity of life. I think that everything must be sincere. Anything connected with interest can never last long, because one day it will be destroyed. In life, I attach importance to spiritual values as they are very important. Today, everything is based on money, so it is important to have spiritual values. I also work to deepen myself. Our consciousness is always limited, and subconscious is free. And of course, it's also important to be a little crazy. It helps to look at the phenomena differently.
