I was born in Tehran, Iran and grew up in Sacramento, California. When I visited Iran as a teenager, I saw my grandparents help the poor in meaningful ways. Contributing to solutions is part of my family’s DNA. Mankind’s unsustainable relationship with the planet is deeply worrisome because, to me, nature is the truest manifestation of magic in our world. The Earth is full of natural marvels such as the many plants, animals and geographies that have emerged over billions of years. To see us so callously counting extinctions is devastating. I support Environment America because I think we need more than individual action. Every person who joins this movement to save our Earth has so much to gain in knowing that they are part of an existential solution at a critical moment.
