About me

I am half-German, half-Iranian and have lived in Hamburg, Spain, England, France and Italy. Something that has now come to be a hobby, but previously meant much more to me, is ballet dancing, and many other areas connected to artistic performance in general – be it theatre, music, literature or fine arts. Also simply spending time being around other people and having nice, enriching conversations! In other words – I like to talk.

At a more professional level, my interests concern the field of Human Rights and all related factors – advocacy, practical help, research or reporting. Therefore, one thing that also has always been one of my main interests is definitely writing, and I hope that one day this hobby will be a significant part of my profession and every-day work life.
