Hundreds of thousands of ordinary innocent children and women are suffering in Syria and other countries every single day. They have no HOPE and voice to TELL their story. Aimmee Kodachian understands the horror and the FEAR that they go through when they hear a bomb.

Get an inside feel for the war from the life of a Lebanese War Victim on this episode of Power Up Living.


Aimmee Kodachian is a Middle Eastern woman who authored "Tears of Hope,” her riveting true life story as a young girl. Aimmee 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. She was faced with countless hardships, escaping death 3 times and lost many close family members. 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.

In 1988, Aimmee took the opportunity to come to the United States and start a new life. After years of persistence and determination, she became a successful entrepreneur. She not only found a way to Rise Above many challenges, she also learned how to see Light through Darkness and now helps others do the same.

Aimmee donates 100% of the profits from “Rise Above” (a song about her life story) and a portion of the proceeds from her “Tears of Hope” book and e-book, to organizations that support victims of war and tragedy.
