I am a 24 year old female, born and raised in Tehran, Iran, and have lived here for the last 9 years.
Iran, as you might know, is a fundamentalist religious state and has contributed a lot to my views regarding God, religion, superstition, human rights, etc.
I’m finishing up my PhD in molecular biology and biochemistry of lung disease at the University of British Columbia. I am very interested in health education, and human rights, and have been constantly challenging others to question their beliefs.
I can see myself doing a mix of policy analysis and policy making in a conjunction of health, law, religion, human rights, and education. Talk about optimism.
I’ve known about Center for Inquiry for a couple of years now, but was [u:04f75f1e67]skeptical![/u:04f75f1e67] to join in earlier. Now, I just can’t resist.
I definitely want to bring a live working copy of this center to beautiful Vancouver, and where ever I go for that matter, and hope to learn a lot from all of you, and from the center, at large.
Hope to join in on your discussions soon,
