Dear Sponsor, 

This is Andranik, one of the counselors of the “Big Family” camp [organized each year by Rev. Fr. Aram Stepanian and the St. Nerses the Great Charitable and Social Organization for our sponsored children]. I am 15 years old. I go to Ashtarak’s High School where I am a 10th grader in the advanced math division. I am interested in math, finances, chess, and sports. 

I like music: I sing, play the piano and the guitar. I want to work on my classic vocals and record some songs.  

I am currently involved as a volunteer. Because of the Azerbaijan attacks on Artsakh, the entire people of Artsakh relocated to Armenia. We are helping them to find places to stay, provide food and necessities.  

I am very close to my camp friends. I went to Big Family camp first as a camper and later as a counselor and the organizer’s assistant. I find it easy to work with children. I also made new friends there. I am grateful to you, my sponsor, and the organizers of the camp for this opportunity.
