The oneness of humanity is a principle that is responsible for why I’m even alive. My parents are from very different backgrounds. My dad is American and my mom is Iranian. I think they wouldn’t have overcome their many cultural barriers if they hadn’t really believed in that principle and thought that it was worth learning about together. That principle has encouraged me to move to different countries and to try to learn about different cultures, which has really shaped my life. My desire to learn about that principle in action has been really meaningful.
