Hello lovely peeps! My name is Parnia and I am currently an undecided second year who is interested in global health and development, anthropology, music, art, films, and languages and is trying to figure out how to incorporate all of that into my remaining three years of education at UVA. I am truly happy to serve as a Persian language assistant at Shea house because I think it is super beautiful and poetic and is also relevant to our global world today. As someone who grew up speaking Persian, or Farsi, I am familiar with both colloquial and conversational forms of Farsi in both reading and writing and believe I can definitely help you improve your Persian if you, yourself are willing to put in the effort. Therefore, please don't hesitate to contact me, whether through email, phone, a knock at my door, snapchat map or any other legal way of locating a person. I am super excited to get to know all of you! Oh, and if you really want to make me happy, ask me about my love for Frank Ocean, Chopin, Yann Tiersen, Googoosh, and Stromae, or anything Jazz ;)
*P.S: I will post more information on schedule, dining hours, and other activities closer to the semester
