With a deep-seeded passion for biotechnology and biosciences, Aramis is eager to specialize his studies in these subjects upon graduation from Ecolint in 2018. His interest in the biotechnology sector was sparked during the Human Physiology unit in Biology class. Aramis enjoyed studying drug interactions and the effect of small molecules on cellular activity.

While he has his sights set on eventually working as a business architect within the pharmaceutical industry one day, Aramis would first like to hone his research skills at university and then work as a project manager within a pharmaceutical company.

Aramis Khorchidian credits his success in school to his organization and time management skills. As Aramis contends, “No matter one’s profession, these are qualities that are essential. Knowing what to do and when to do it is the key to efficiency, productivity and good performance in all areas of life. Over the past few years, these are skills I have been carefully honing to be best prepared for my university and, later, professional career.”

Aramis has attained both The Bronze Standard and The Silver Standard of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award from the International School of Geneva. He was an Academic Honor Roll Student during the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 school years.

Personal Interests

During his free time, Aramis enjoys playing the violin, skiing, and boxing. Music has always been one of his main passions as it is a great way to balance out his busy, highly academic lifestyle.

Aramis has grown up skiing his entire life and, for several years, he trained with a ski racing team that involved training for over 18 hours per week. His love for Thai Boxing developed more recently but has proved to be one of his most rewarding hobbies. For Aramis, Muay Thai style fighting is an incredibly fascinating sport that teaches respect and perseverance as well as builds a strong mind.
