My life in Aleppo

I moved to Yerevan three years ago, I’m used to the life here but lately, I’ve been a little more homesick than usual which is why I want to write about my life in Aleppo right before I left it.

When I was living there I used to go to the AGBU club 5 days a week, I even used to study there and instead of hanging out at cafes or malls we used to hang out at the club and so did everyone else. We had committee and scouts meetings, we organized camps, games, parties and lectures. I was lucky enough to be a part of all this and I want to share some of my experiences with you.

Although most of the people in the pictures are not in Aleppo anymore, I am forever grateful to have these memories with such good people. My life now is completely different, not better, not worse, just different. But in all matters, Yerevan is my home too!
