Klavdia is a finalist of the 2016 I Want to Go to Artek contest (the contest is organized by the Artek International Children’s Center in cooperation with Russian Post). Klavdia comes from a family with five children. Her father has very poor eyesight, and children do their best to help their parents around the house. Klavdia’s letter was written as a poem.
“Artek is the best children’s camp. I first found out about Artek from a book about medical instructor Gulya Korolyova. My brother Yevgeny and I got interested, and started reading about the camp. We looked for ways to get to this legendary place, and found information about the letter contest. When we heard that both our letters were chosen, we could hardly believe it! Everyone is trying to go to Artek, but not many people get to do that. Artek has taught me to be disciplined. We were lucky to come here during the school year. At the Artek school I realized that I want to be a better student” says Klavdia.
Klavdia and Yevgeny know the name of the person who bought them Artek vacation vouchers: it is Oleg. “We want to thank him so much for helping us to get to this amazing camp, and making our dream come true! We would like to choose a good profession after finishing school, go to university, and help the camp, so that other children could also have such a great time here!” say the siblings.
