She would apply make-up to her mother, aunts, friends, and more. After a little while past, she developed techniques, tricks to make their face and eyes look more structured and bigger. She then decided to go to Beauty school and go more up close and personal to learn the art of makeup, cosmetology, anatomy of the human body, waxing, nails, eyebrow shaping as extra courses that she took in school. After a 2 year program, Anais graduated, then began to work at her studio to utilize her skills and talent.

Anais uses all makeup lines – Her favourites include, are makeup forever HD(High Definition) foundation, because they provide full coverage and have the matte effect. She also loved Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring kit. As for lips her go to is M.A.C, Bourjois, Paris Glosses, for the eyes she always goes with a Bobby Brown eye liner, or a inglot gel liner. She is not a fan of Liquid Liner because she likes to make her work the most natural and she thinks that liquid does not give that natural result.

Dedicated to Primate Bishop Bagrat Galstanyan – A True Leader

I would like to introduce to you someone who is very dear to me in my heart and in my life, I would like to talk about someone who many of us in the world who love and appreciate him and his name is Bishop Bagrat Galstanyan of whom is our Canada Armenian Church Leader.  Please note when I say Srpazan that’s the Armenian word for Bishop.

Now, this past week, something unfair happened that there were elections of having another leader lead our Armenian Church Diocese Head in Canada, and the location of our head church office is in Montreal, Outremont, Quebec. The election was indeed a setup and a lot of people are against what happened, a petition is going around, and many people are quite upset about what happened and how the way things transpired. Most of the people are calling this a misjudgment and not making a great decision for our Armenian church of Canada with good intentions and I myself and others do not believe this election was done in a fair manner and things we done beforehand to alter the numbers. Something suspicious and fishy is going on and we want to get to the bottom of this and we want answers. Anyway,

in 2003 when I met Srpazan Bagrat Galstanyan, I knew right away I would love him and he became someone who I consider family to me. Srpazan has taught me so many things about life and his words, his speeches, the meetings I was in with him in ACYOC (Armenian Church Youth Organization of Canada), Kingston, Mississauga, traveling to Vancouver for our Sports Weekend in 2005, Going to Montreal/Laval sports weekends, Camping trips, and so many more memories. Srpazan Bagrat Galstanyan is someone who is very special and dear to me and the loss of him being our Srpazan and our leader has hit me so hard and it is hurting me beyond anything else. It is far worse than someone hitting me with a bat, but that does not even compare to the pain this is causing me and this has been on my mind since I heard about this on Monday Morning. I cried so hard, I cried so hard inside too, my tears rolled down my cheeks, and I am so angry!

Srpazan was there for me at my toughest moments when I was bullied, picked on because I was different and I went to events where I felt alone and left out, but Srpazan came to my rescue and he spoke to me, made me feel better about myself, and he gave me advice, he opened his heart to me. I will never forget that for the rest of my life. Srpazan was there for me when nobody else really was, I met many friends in Montreal because of Srpazan, and I was introduced to a whole new world and I was so excited to go to Montreal all the time and to see my friends. Srpazan after knew me by my first name, and he remembered what we discussed, he was always asking me how I am and how I am doing since we talked. THAT THERE TO ME SAID IT ALL! I knew I would love and trust him forever and I always will forever. He gave me the energy, he gave me something in my life that will always remain with me forever. He smiled at me always, and always excited to see me, shaking my hand, blessing my head with his hand. It was a great feeling!

I cannot stomach it To see him being treated unfairly, betrayed by his clergyman who he thought were his friends, who he thought were with him and support him and in a disgusting way his clergyman had to vote against him and on what grounds? This is unbelievable! and having these elections. What is this? A political race? Is this some kind of JOB race? I want Srpazan back, I want this whole bogus election to be void.

The true meaning of being Christian, and being a servant of God is to reach out to people in a personal level, to inspire, to help, to guide, to do great work for the community, to dedicate his/herself without asking for material things. I love Srpazan Bagrat so much! He will always be special to me and I Just want him back! Is that so hard to ask? This is betrayal.

Here is the Facebook page. Help and support us by getting him Back to stay with us, and there are pictures, videos, and links about him if you want to know more about our leader who is selfless, kind, spiritual, dedicated, caring, loving, humorous and so many more great qualities about him.

My Experience seeing the New Holy Cross Armenian Church of Laval being built before my eyes… By: Talin Orfali

I had embarked on a wonderful journey to Laval, Quebec and I had a spiritual, emotional, physical closeness to the future new home of the Holy Cross Armenian Church of Laval, Quebec. It was an experience I will never forget, seeing a new Armenian Church being built from the ground up, seeing the hard work being put into it, and all the hard work our clergyman, and our Armenian Community, Community of Laval and all those who day and night made this possible. I love you all deeply, God Bless this beautiful new church to be and all those who will walk, pray and enjoy this beautiful church once it is built. I am ever so excited and anxiously waiting for the opening ceremonies to take effect. I will be the first one there.

It is an indescribable and emotional feeling I had being there, actually seeing it, and feeling it. Although I will miss the many memories shared in the Holy Cross Armenian Church of Laval house on Boul St Martin, but those memories will forever be cherished and new beginnings and new memories will be rendered into my heart, mind and soul in the new church on Chemin Souvenier. I love Laval, Quebec and Montreal very much. It is again an indescribable feeling being in that city. I feel like I am at home and I cannot wait to call this new beautiful church my home away from home. May God Bless, and keep this church safe and I wish for a successful building process and God Bless and energize the builders and all those who worked so hard to get to where it has got today.

The New Holy Cross Armenian Church of Laval is with me everyday in my heart, mind and soul and not a day goes by where I don’t think of it. Let new memories begin. God Bless everyone.

Life as a Canadian born Armenian…

When I was very young, My Parents, Grandparents, Armenian Priests, and Armenian Teachers, always taught me the importance of keeping my heritage and culture alive. I started by going to Armenian Saturday School to learn the alphabet, reading, writing, history, culture, heritage, then following Armenian Sunday School which taught me about the Armenian Church, history, and christianity. Soon after I graduated both schools, I officially went to the Motherland Armenia to see the real deal. All the beautiful and important things I learned came before my eyes. I could not believe, that I was standing on Armenia’s ground and soil. I had tears roll down my eyes feeling ever so happy, yet emotional at the same time.

After returning from my Motherland Armenia, I automatically started to come out to Armenian events, listening to Armenian music, joining committees such as ACYOC (Armenian Church Youth Organization of Canada), as well as Armenian Bible Fellowships, joining events with ACYOA (Armenian Church Youth Organization of America) in the United States of America, Joining in Armenian conventions, conferences, Going to Ottawa, Canada every year for the commemoration of the April 24, 1915 Armenian Genocide and to march with my fellow Armenians, Joining in Armenian message boards, and websites on the internet, continuing to further my experience and my life as an Armenian, being a teachers assistant at St Sahag St Mesrob Armenian Saturday School where I spent 10 years as a student, and now as I look at the students now, I always remember my times as I look at them. I get emotional at times when I hear the Music, the School and our National Anthem. I will be continuing my journey to even doing more.

I have made many friends from all over Canada, such as Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, St Catherines, Laval, as well as USA, West and East coasts, meeting people from out of North America and I love each and everyone of you and I hope that our bonds and our friendships never fade away. You all carry an important part of my heart and soul.

It is my priority in my life to be Armenian, to assist Armenians not only in Canada, but all over the aworld, to instill in others that nothing is more beautiful and precious than being Armenian. It is a gift from God and I will use that gift to its fullest. Many people these days take being Armenian for granted, and I will do the best of my ability to strengthen, to guide those people to the right path and teach them the way. It is so important to strengthen our bonds. We are very few in this world and we must stick together, grow together, love each other. Being in Canada or wherever you are from, we must find a way to stick together.

If it wasn’t for my parents, brother, grandmothers, My grandfather the late Habib Torossian, My teachers, My grade 8 teacher Baron Antranig Chilinguirian, Bishop Hovnan Derderian, Bishop Bagrat Galstanian, Bishop Khajag Barsamian, Bishop Ararat Kaltakjian, Fr. Zareh Zargarian, Fr Myron Sarkissian, Fr Gomidas Mirzakhanian, Fr Vasken Boyadjian, Fr Keghart Garabedian, Rev Hayrik Hovanisyan, and all the priests and Armenian people I have met along the way, I wouldn’t be where I am today and I love you all deeply and I thank you all very much for everything you all have taught me along the way.

So, Thank you for everything. I will use the knowledge and information that you all embedded into my heart, mind, and soul and preach and teach that to everyone. God Bless Armenia, God Bless Armenians, God Bless everyone
