Lena’s early life and education
She was born as Lena Nersesian on 1st July 1991 in California, US. Her parents are of Armenian descent and are quite a conservative Christian couple. Lena Plug seems to be their only child.
She grew up in Glendale, California and completed her High School education in 2009. Being raised in a conservative family meant one thing – she was not allowed to talk about Sex or dating.
She would not even be allowed to watch the family sitcom, boy meets the world. She would turn off the series as soon as her parents made their presence. It is a Surprise she turned out to be who she is – a bold lady who understands the power of her body!
After her graduation from High School, she was admitted to the Santa Cruz University of California to study Psychology. During this time, she went to Lund University in Sweden for a year as an exchange student. Lena is fond of her memories in Sweden and recalls its great food and people.

Lena’s response was that she believed her parents would come around eventually when their initial shock passed.
