Aimmee Kodachian is the author of “Tears of Hope”, her riveting true life story of a young Middle Eastern girl, who lived 13 years through the Lebanese Civil War. She was only 12 years old when a bomb killed her older brother right in front of her. In the blink of an eye, her family would soon lose everything and become homeless.
Aimmee was faced with enormous obstacles and many challenges. Due to her severe dyslexia and the war, she was forced to leave school at the 4th grade, lost her dream of becoming a teacher and was left with no opportunities or hope. Aimmee was persuaded into marriage. The ceremony took place only three days after her 14th birthday. At 15, she became a mother. When she was still a teenager, she became a single mom and was left with no education, skills or money. It was up to her to figure out how to feed her daughter while dealing with the War and the culture’s belief system. Her daughter became her “WHY” and that kept her going day after day, despite the tragic loss of many family members. After narrowly escaping death three times, Aimmee was determined to make a better life for her and her daughter. In 1988, Aimmee took the opportunity to come to the United States and start a new life. Soon after her arrival, she was told to go back to her country because “You are not going to make it here.” In her heart, she knew she had her “WHY” and that’s all that she needed!
