Colette Ghazarian

I was born in Los Angeles, California in 1992. Growing up, I had many opportunities to explore my Armenian heritage and culture. From a young age, I took Armenian language classes and participated in Homenetmen Ararat Chapter’s scout program.

In high school, I decided to contribute more to the Armenian cause. I applied for an internship with the Armenian National Committee – Western Region and was accepted as a Public and Media Relations Intern. As part of my participation in the program, I authored press releases, took part in workshops and seminars on Armenian issues, and spearheaded an effort to establish Genocide education workshops in local high schools.

From 2010 to 2014, I attended UCLA, where I received a B.A. in history with a minor in French. While at UCLA I was very involved in UCLARadio, the university’s student-run radio station. I was not only a DJ for the station, but was also the Fundraising Manager and part of the station’s overall management team. I was also a member of UCLA’s Armenian Students Association.

When I first started college, I thought I wanted to ultimately work in the entertainment or music industries. As I progressed through my studies, I realized that I was much more interested in how new technologies had impacted those industries, particularly the legal ramifications of those impacts. Thus, I shifted my focus to law.

Prior to beginning law school, I worked as a legal assistant to Howard Fredman at Fredman Lieberman Pearl, LLP. While at the firm, I was able to assist in two trials, as well as help draft memoranda and briefs. With some legal experience under my belt, I applied and was accepted to Harvard Law School, where I am currently pursuing my J.D. (Class of 2018).
