As you may expect, not many girls dream of becoming a sharpshooter, but I am one of them.

I wish to study in a military institute to become a top sharp shooter. Although I am young, I am already working towards my dream. I attend the Young Yerkrapah’s Club in my village, where I am studying many military skills which will help me succeed, as well as foreign languages.

The deadly clashes of the April 4 Day War of 2016 gave me more inspiration and strength to accomplish my dream. I have decided to someday study in military institute after Vazgen Sargsyan. Although I still have 4 more years of school before I can dedicate myself to sharp shooting, I know that once my time comes I will be ready.

Many of my friends and peers also share my opinion that girls should be conscripted as well, and given the same opportunities as the boys.
