Soccer is a lifelong passion for my family and I, and keeping up with Iranian soccer has always been a means for me to be most in touch with my Persian heritage.
I'm a senior broadcast journalism student at University of Arkansas, home of the Razorbacks. I also anchor the university news. I'm a news intern for the NBC TV station in Houston and I intern with the local ESPN Radio station.
I grew up with my Baba as the high school soccer coach and club coach. I played academy club soccer as a teen for Space City SC, located close to NASA in Houston.
Grew up playing center mid and left back.
I'm proud to be a member of a podcast with integrity to provide info and analysis for soccer fans everywhere about Iran.
