Hye Oozh hosts
I’m Tatevik Ekezian, Program Director of the Hye Oozh Radio Show. I was born in Yerevan, Armenia and my family moved to the wonderful city of Fresno in the summer of 1990 and we have resided here ever since. There is a type of magic that happens when all Armenians come together under one “roof”; it’s simply amazing and empowering. Perhaps it was this magic, joined with my family’s patriotism that pushed me to become and stay active in the Armenian community.
Hello everyone, my name is Vartush Mesropyan! I was born on December 9, 1990 in Yerevan, Armenia. In the year of 1992 my family and I came to the United States. After living in Los Angeles for about eight years in the year 2000 we moved to Fresno, California. As I was growing up in a traditional family I have always been taught to be proud of my culture and believe that there was more to the word Armenian; strength, power, and growth.
Hey! I’m Marine Vardanyan, and I am one of the Hye Oozh DJs! I was born on March 30, 1993 in Yerevan, Armenia and I came to America when I was 6 years old. It was difficult for me and my family to adjust to the new life in America, but having Hye Oozh in Fresno really helped. I am truly thankful to Hye Oozh for being there and giving us a little piece of Armenia in this foreign land. I have lived in Fresno ever since we moved here and I have grown to love it! Although most of my family is still in Armenia, my life here in America is wonderful with my parents, grandparents, and older brother.
