Alina Sahakian: Klutz life

Alina Sahakian believes she is a bigger klutz than you, and she tells her story to prove it. She loves to dance, but an injury becomes tests her patience and limits her freedom. The lesson being: It takes time to heal.

Alina Sahakian along with Bryan Lewis, Ryan Quinn McIntire, Patrick C. Taylor and April Shannon Threet came out to tell stories inspired by the word “injuries.” (We played a playlist based on the song of the night, “Ambulance,” by Blur.) We thought the theme could inspire stories of broken bones and broken hearts, but we were open to wherever it would take them.

Bio: Alina Sahakian, a former ballet dancer, studies biology at Old Dominion University and speaks Eastern Armenian and American Sign Language.
