What inspires you to get up every morning? I feel inspired to get up every day and pour love and kindness into the world. I believe that when we live our Dharma, we live our highest and best life. Living my life with purpose embodies, service, humility, love, gratitude and kindness. I believe the world is one country and mankind its citizens. I embrace the “ONENESS” of our humanity.
What do you consider to be your best accomplishment? Having the courage to leave two toxic marriages with two young children. Without my courage, I would not be where I am today. Standing in my truth, knowing my self-worth and instilling these values in my children.
What is your favorite way to give back to the community? I founded the International Interfaith Women’s Group over 15 years ago. It started it with 8 women and grew to 1200 women from around the world. This group is about women’s empowerment, oneness, community and service. One of the organizations so close to my heart is Must Ministries Homeless Shelter, I’ve organized lunches there the past 12 years. I have served for foster kids groups, meals for kids in summer, domestic violence organizations, sex trafficking organizations and hosted foreign exchange students. I have also participated in fundraisers for St. Jude’s, local schools, Drake House and outreach for refugee communities. My family volunteered our home for the Roswell Holiday Home Tour to raise money for college funds.
What do you think has contributed most to your success in life? Living from a place of inspiration, mindfulness and an open heart has led me to experiencing thousands of magical moments in my life and manifesting my dreams. There are no coincidences. Every single moment is divinely placed in our life for our personal growth. I honor and respect all of my life lessons.
What person, thing, or event has influenced your life most? My parents have been my biggest influences in my life. They had to flee their country of Iran in the ‘70s, fleeing religious persecution, and started over in a new land with nothing. This showed me that anything is possible if you have faith, hope and family. They have taught me about the oneness of humanity from childhood and to use the principles of the Bahai Faith in every aspect of life. My parents instilled a thirst for spirituality in my life.
