From the Asbarez feature published July 1, 2015.

Amalya Yeghoyan was at a sidewalk café table in Glendale June 3, meeting with two IT business executives. Mihran Toumajan, a professional I interviewed more than a year ago, stood to greet me as I walked by and introduced us. Yeghoyan had traveled to Glendale from her home in Gyumri, Armenia to find new business opportunities for GTech Solutions, a software development firm established by the Gyumri Information Technologies Center (GITC).

The Glendale City Council had just voted to establish a sister city program with Gyumri; I had seen the meeting the previous day on GTV6. Yeghoyan had been there in the audience. I found out she wasn’t part of the official delegation: an acquaintance told her about it and invited her to come on the spur of the moment. We agreed to meet so I could learn more about her goals in Southern California. A few days later, I walked to the offices of Information Integration Group, Yeghoyan’s base of operations.
