Karoline Kouzouian Samuelian was born in Aleppo, Syria on December 14, 1973 and is the youngest of four children. She was raised with a strong Christian faith, which was gifted to her by her grandmother Zakieh, her inspiration and role model of love, care and devotion. She taught her the treasure of God’s love and the beauty of giving. Although she passed long ago, she has had and still continues to have one of the greatest impacts on Karoline’s life till today.
At the age of thirteen, Karoline moved to the United States with her family. She got married to Vasken Samuelian at nineteen years old. Two years later, they were blessed with an angel named Alina.
Karoline has been President/Owner of Giorgio Cosani (Designer Menswear) since 1995.
As a child she always loved helping others, especially people whom she felt were powerless and helpless in life. As she grew older, her passion for helping people in need grew along with her. Her heart goes out most to the innocent children and orphans suffering from poverty and war. She believes that every child has the ability to make a difference in the world and that no innocent child deserves to suffer. Therefore, she created FLY to give herself and others the opportunity to make an extraordinary difference and make this world a better place.
“God is LOVE, the most powerful force on this planet. The core of this great mission is LOVE. Our love for God grows through faith, and I would like to thank my beloved Grandmother who helped me strengthen my faith and greatly touched my life with God’s essence. Beyond anything, FLY is here to shine that love upon individuals who need it most,” Karoline says.
