I am Veronica. I am 13 years old. I love my family. The family is where we are surrounded with love and respect from people. My family consists of four people: me, my father, my mother, my brother. I prefer to start with my fatherwho is central to our family.His name is Karlen. He is 37 years old. My dad spends a lot of time to earn money.When he isat home, it is a joy for me, as he always has something interesting to tell us.My father is a good man and an excellent father. Me mother, Alla is a housewife.She's 34 years old but looks much younger.She is my angel and I dream to be like her. My brother, John, is a good guy.He is 9 years old. My brother helps us in all matters.For me he is a good brother and a great friend. I like to dance,  sing, read, and spend a good time with my friends and family because life is too short and I want to enjoy the good things.  I inherited singing from my grandmother. She taught me almost all the folk songs and dancesof the blood of the nation. Fromour authors, I loveHovhannes Tumanyan the most. I have read almost all his tales and stories. I like to be the first everywhere.  In regards to my future profession, I'm not in a hurry to choose one.It is a complicated process and it your future depends on it.You have to think long and hard about it and appreciate your abilities, your talents, and your interests and be serious about this decision. I dream of my own candy factory for all children to have free candy and snacks.

Now back to reality. I take part in «Providing education for 150 children in Armenia» program aimed at providing basic education for children who have been held back for various reasons. During this program, the selected children from 6 regional groups participate in Young Journalists Online Club (YJOC) and go back to school to carry out the rest of the training program.Their communities will be selected by taking into account the "Community Youth Voice" how activethe students kept their blogs, websites, and social media.The program helps students update their knowledge learned from school and this helps actively progress basic education. I am very glad that I participated in this program during the summer holidays.

«Communities' Young Voices» is oriented toward the goal of creating more inclusive youth groups through a community development process, to develop the ability to identify and raise awareness of their community issues and to search for sustainable solutions alongside industry knowledge.

«Communities' Young Voices» provides information to improve knowledge, skills and tools to deliver a program which organizes meetings and training in four of ten provinces including Khor Virap in Ararat province, Jermuk in Vayots Tzor province, Hrazdan in Kotayk province, Byurakan in Areagatzotni province.

«Communities' Youth Voices» works in these areas in order to create a more free and open environment for regional meetings and organized interactive game discussions for youth and community to raise and discuss issues in an attempt to find possible solutions such as alerting the media, journalism and the possibility of further detailed work programs that are more effective at relevant research.  The research by the community to correct these problems will result in strengthened ties between Yerevan and the afore mentioned regions through knowledge gained from the youth of the community presenting their problems and the increased connectivity between Yerevan and the provinces through more efficient means of communications such as online forums and social media.
