“It is with a heavy heart that I leave my job at the Armenian Weekly after seven years. I will always cherish my time there as an intern, staff writer, assistant editor, and, over the past two years, editor. I would like to thank the Weekly team, all the contributors, columnists, writers, photographers, and designers that I’ve worked with over the years. It has been a pleasure! Above all, I wish to thank our readers and supporters—it has been an honor serving you,” said Barsoumian.

Barsoumian assumed the editorship of the Armenian Weekly in September 2014. She had previously served as an assistant editor (2010-14) and staff writer (2009-10) during the editorship of Khatchig Mouradian.

“I trust the paper will be in good hands after my departure. The Weekly has continued to grow under the supervision and care of dedicated individuals,” she added.

Barsoumian’s writings have focused on human rights, politics, poverty, and environmental and gender issues. She has reported from Armenia, Nagorno-Karabagh, Javakhk, and Turkey. She earned her B.A. degree in political science and English from the University of Massachusetts (Boston), where she is currently pursuing her graduate studies.
