Hello, I am Anano from Georgia. It is my 7th month in A.C.T.O.R. During this time, I had amazing experiences and touching moments too with the children. It was a time when they were emotional and sentimental at the same time, and that made me feel lucky enough that I was able to understand and share their experience.
One story I would remember always is with a little girl called A. I met her in the summer time. She was such a sweetheart and smart little girl. I had been seeing her in the center for a couple of months. She taught me how to do some origami, we were doing some crafts, besides she loved when she painted my nails in a different color. She gave me an unforgettable handwritten letter, her painting, which I am keeping. From my side, at her birthday I gave her handwriting poster, seeing her shining eyes will be always in my mind.
We were talking a lot. About her, her experience in school and how strong she became after her illness. Her story still amazes me how this little girl has such a strong character and warrior soul.
In the end I felt an amazing bond with her, her stories will always be in my memories, she gave me amazing experiences which I will remember always and all the time.
