Dear Ms. Alice,
This is Nana again. . . I had a really big event in my life: my classmates and I graduated from high school. It was a happy and touching moment in my life. On one hand, it seems that I achieved a lot and worked hard to graduate from high school, but on the other hand I realize that those 12 years of my life are gone as well as my childhood, and there is a hard and demanding road ahead towards my goals and finding my place in life.
As of June 4 the statewide exams to score for colleges in Armenia have started. I participated in the geography exam and passed it with a very good score of 19. Later on, I will also take the English exam.
Besides those statewide exams, I will also have final exams in school for Armenian language and history. I applied to the State University to the faculty of Hospitality Management. I will do everything I can to pass the rest of my exams with good scores, because my only plan right now is to do my best to achieve my goals in life.
That’s about what is new in my life. My enormous gratitude to you for your support.
My name is Tagouhi. I was born in the village of Archis on January 7th 2011 and I still live there. I started going to kindergarten when I was 6 years old, and started elementary school when I was 7. Presently, I am in second grade in school. My favorite subjects in school are Math and Chess. And my favorite pass time – dancing and playing with my friends. I also like playing with animals and picking wild flowers in the fields and gifting them to my mom. I love surprising my mom. When she doesn’t feel good, I take care of her.
I live with my mom, sister, and grandpa. My grandpa is retired and doesn’t work. My mom takes care of all of us and she doesn’t work either. My dad died in 2010, when I wasn’t even born yet, and my grandma died two years ago.
My sister is in 5th grade in school. We live in a badly damaged apartment. My dream is to have a bicycle.

My name is Sevak. I live in Armenia, in the region of Syunik, in the village of Kornidzor. I am 15 years old and go to 10th grade in school. Our family consists of four people.
My father was wounded during the Artsakh war and died as a result of his wounds. My mom doesn’t have a job and we barely get by. I help my mom in her everyday chores and because of that I don’t have much time for school work and I am not doing very well in school.
I am not a very demanding person, and I don’t ask my mom for things that I know she cannot give me. She is paying in installments for my books and school supplies. We don’t have our own house. We live in the house of one of the villagers.

This is Marine. I am eight years old and have a younger sister who is two. My sister, my mom and I live with my grandparents. We don’t have our own place. I always wanted to have it and I hope this day will come. My grandparents’ house is wooden and during the rains the roof leaks. I am glad that the days are getting warmer now and we won’t be cold anymore.We are very grateful to you for your help. With the money you send us, my mom buys us food. May the spring bring you warmth, joy, and happiness.
