My name is Anahid Der-Aprahamian and this year I will be serving on the St. James ACYO executive board as the


Currently, I am attending Pepperdine University in pursuit of a Masters Degree in Psychology. I am the oldest of three siblings. My brothers and I joined ACYO in 2010 when we were invited to join our chapter's girl's volleyball and boy's basketball teams. When we first joined ACYO I wasn't a very active member and I did not attend meetings very often. However, in 2015 I began attending meetings again. In 2015 I was nominated and elected to be on the executive board, since then I have held various positions on the executive board. I am glad I rediscovered ACYO in 2015 because it has provided me with countless opportunities to meet new people and make new friends, to be a part of the Armenian/Christian community, and to grow as an individual. 

Thank you St. James ACYO for giving me yet another opportunity to serve on your executive board. I'm excited to see what great things await our ACYO in the future!!


I am excited to be the Vice Chairman of St. James ACYO this year. I am 21 years old and I have been in ACYO for a few years now. I attend El Camino College and I plan on becoming an accountant. I look forward to this coming year in ACYO.
