If we peeked in your purse right now, what would we find?

Chocolate, nail polish, lipstick, lotion, hand sanitizer and tons of crumbs/wrappers (toddler snacks).

Why do you call the Twin Cities home?

After my family migrated here in the 80s from Iran, we made Minnesota our home. I was raised here since age two, and I absolutely adore our seasons and lakes! I’ve been an outdoors girl, camping and hiking, since I was a toddler, and I just love our state parks. My favorite view is from the North Shore!

What’s been the greatest joy of motherhood?

Seeing the world through the eyes of my two-year and having found appreciation for all the little things that many adults see as ordinary (ants, airplanes, school buses) has been so amazing. I truly get excited when my daughter is amazed at something new (big or small).

What’s been the greatest challenge of motherhood?

Just one? Balancing my time! I often feel guilty for putting things on the back burner just to focus on something else…working from home vs toddler playtime, my own self care, date nights, etc. It’s been so tricky to do it all and not feel guilty about something. Home organization? What’s that? Lol Doh*

How do you hope your life influences and/or inspires other women?

My biggest hope is that women from all over who feel unheard or underrepresented can find the confidence and courage to truly do and say what is on their heart without worrying about being judged – especially when we live such different lives and have different journeys. We need to all feel encouraged to do what scares us and what motivates us.
