I’m from Iran. I lived in Norway for two years finishing high school (UWC) and later moved to the United States to study at COA. In the past 5 years of my life I’ve roamed and learned things in the realm of human development; all things philosophy and psychology, literature, education, along with food systems studies. I enjoy meeting new people, gardening and cooking food with them, and find conversation and dialogue to be potent in the sense that they evoke our voices, form our perspectives, and can shape our writing. Working together on writing can be a space for brainstorming, analyzing, synthesizing and fine tuning ideas, arguments, and narratives. I hope to meet you sometime in the Green Garden Room of the Writing Center.
