An Iranian Woman Writes of Her Journey

"Tragedy after tragedy changed my life. Even though they changed me, but always, I have refused to be reduced by them... 

"I am an Iranian woman, a researcher, a learner, a lecturer and they call us the third generation and some call us the burnt generation, but I am very much alive! 

"I have been student my entire life, ... I started teaching at a college and became the youngest lecturer in the college, however my passion to gain more knowledge pushed me yet again behind the desk and now I am a student once more... I have realised that I cannot discover the kind of knowledge and wisdom I am seeking for in the papers, books and texts but I am willing to go as far as I can to be a better person in my own way. 

"This is Journey Through My Life: I believe if I learn from my enemies, then I have no enemies but teachers. I’ve learnt silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind - I still have a lot to learn! ... 

~ Narges
