My purpose in this world is to learn and develop a radiant spirit through
closing my eyes to the deficiencies of other souls and to try to show pure and
goodly deeds by helping my neighbor. I truly believe that I have not lived
until I have lived to help you.
I was born in Tehran, Iran on December 31, 1966. My family of 6 moved to
Chicago, Illinois in 1969. My father is an amazing man who speaks 13 languages.
My mother as delicate as a rose, who lives in order for us (her children) to be
happy and satisfied. I have two older sisters and 2 older brothers, one of
which passed away at the age of 6 months.
I have been writing poetry since 1979, age 13 and began reciting my poetry in
high school and later at gatherings and weekly on a local television program in
Los Angeles. I have been published in approximately 6 publications and 1
newspaper and have self-published 3 books.
I moved to Hawaii in 1995 after graduating from California State University
Northridge with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Journalism.
