Meet The Founders

Hi, I’m one of the co-founders of Armenian Kid Club. I’d like to note that I was totally against this unnatural pose you see in this image.   

I’ve always loved to tell stories but I feel that when we started AKC, that’s when I got my chance to really dive into it.  I received a bachelor’s degree in television production from CSUN and also minored in Armenian studies from the same university.  After graduation, I went on to work many years for a local TV Production company as an editor and graphic designer.  In 2015, I put both my education and work experience into Armenian Kids Club.  I haven’t looked back since!

Hi, I’m Ash.  When I’m working on AKC products, I feel very young at heart.  I must say that I’m proud to be one of the co-founders of Armenian Kids Club, Inc.

My background is in Information Technology for about 16 years now. Armenian Kids Club and the projects we work on for kids gives me a sense of satisfaction that I just don’t get from I.T.  It’s just an awesome feeling!       

 

 

Meet Our Ambassadors

Hi, Henri here.  I’m an ambassador for Armenian Kids Club with 20 years of experience in the animation industry.  I studied art and animation at San Jose State University and have worked on many fun projects involving animation in my career. 

I decided to join Armenian Kids Club because I believe in the mission and can align with the vision that both Armine and Ashot have.  My goal is to create the next Armenian believed hero whom our children and grandchildren will grow up with.

 

 

When Did We Start

Armenian Kids Club was founded in 2015 as a result of many years of searching for ways to teach our children how to read, write and think Armenian in a fun and interactive way.
It is our firm belief that we absolutely must teach our kids Armenian as well as other languages.  Learning a language is a great way to flex the brain power of a child at an early stage of their lives. 

Obstacles We Faced

Some of the biggest hurdles we faced were starting with almost zero funds, high printing costs in the U.S., whether to publish in Eastern Armenian only or Western Armenian as well and how to manage this massive work load with three young kids in the family.  We still have some of these issues today but we love our work so we plow through them anyway!
