I'm from the 703 and a child of immigrant parents who have a greater success story than Michael Jordan, in my opinion. I was part of a Suite Life of Zack and Cody fan club in 5th grade and I have been trying to chase that suite life high ever since.
I hope to bring my dreams of creative story telling to life by one day producing a screenplay based on my first generation, Middle Eastern American upbringing. My other interests include watching NBA games, learning new graphic design skills, eating my mom's Persian food, collecting new sneakers and 'saving' DIY cooking and house decor videos knowing damn well I won't be attempting to do anything watched in those vids.
I've always had my sights set on working for a big name client in the music, entertainment, fashion or tech industries after graduation. However what I really want is to be someone who amplifies diversity and inclusion in these professional fields while also bringing more diverse voices into the room, on whatever path I find myself taking.
If none of this excites you lets just discuss how Adam Sandler's filmography from the 90s to mid 2000s led the way to establishing the legalization of gay marriage in America.
Comedy can heal this world. Thanks SANDMAN!
