Who Am I?

In a nutshell: I love telling stories, in any language I know, in any form I can!
I was born in 1989 in a small town in northwestern Iran.
I began with amateur journalism already in high school; I was editor in chief of a school magazine that would be contributed in schools of the town. Later in the university, I grounded a student magazine that was banned later because of its „too critical content.“ Being arrested and convicted to two years in prison, I was forced to leave the homeland. I flew to Iraqi Kurdistan first, where I used to report on Kurdistan and Iraq for Iranian media abroad, such as Radio Zamaneh. 2015, I moved to Germany and followed the dream of becoming a professional storyteller. Since 2016 I also write for German media on Iran, Middle East, Migration and so on.
In 2016 and 2017, I completed a further education programme in journalism, film and media management and studied digital journalism (MA) at the Hamburg Media School. I currently live in Hamburg and work as a freelance journalist.
