Today she told Armenian journalists the formula for beauty. "By nature, I'm quite plain, generous, and kind. Probably this inward kindness was reflected in my appearance. I have never undergone plastic surgery, I don't use facial care products, and I've never been on a diet. I'm just happy; I dance; I do some aerobics," she said. Regarding the reaction of her family members to the beauty contest Miss Grandma 2012 said her son was against her participation in the contest.
