In my free time, I compete in Speech and Debate, play tennis, volunteer for various charity groups including National Charity League, SWIFT Youth Foundation, and Girl Scouts. I also enjoy playing piano, biking with friends, and playing with my dog Bailey. As the daughter of Iranian immigrants, I am especially passionate about advocating for issues concerning Middle-Eastern immigrants in the US.

I hope to inspire and educate like-minded youth to amplify our voice. We are teens but we are not powerless!"
