    I am Cemil Sorgun, a current exchange student at CalArts. I am originally from Berlin, but my parents are from Gürün in Turkey, formerly Gurin. Recently, I discovered that my great-grandmother was very likely an Armenian orphan. This revelation has led me to initiate a film project, conducting research to connect with individuals whose families have ties to Gurin and may have stories to share.

    I would be very happy if you know anyone who might have relatives with a history of Gürün.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello, my name is Oleg.

    I am 21 years old. I am from an industrial city in the south-east of Ukraine, Zaporozhye. All the time since the beginning of the war, this city is being destroyed, and the situation is getting worse…

    I’m looking for a sponsor in the USA under the u4u program. I would be very grateful if you help me come. I have friends here with whom I can stay until I get comfortable, but unfortunately they cannot help me with the documents. Therefore, I am looking for a person who can help me with this. And someone who will become a new friend whom I can turn to for advice and support in the USA.

    I am very grateful to the American people for already helping many Ukrainians through the U4U program.

    But unfortunately, the bloody war continues, beautiful cities are being destroyed, ordinary people are dying.

    And those who were affected by this war will understand me. I just want to enjoy life, do what I love, spend time with family and friends…

    And my opinion is that the USA is the safest country in which people feel safe.

    I’d like to introduce myself. I am a responsible, kind guy, without bad habits. I graduated from university and have a degree in tourism.

    I used to play a lot of sports

    In addition, I know how and love to cook delicious food. (because from an early age I began to live independently of my parents and can take care of myself).

    If you need more information about me, we could have a video call.

    I hope that you have the opportunity and desire to help me.

    Thanks for your time and help.
