ID شناسنامه

I am a trained anthropologist, holding a Master of democracy from Uppsala University. I have long nurtured a broad interest in issues involving humans as cultural and social being. The learning content and its area is close to my heart, and to continue working in this field for me is a powerful motivator.


I have, for over 20 years, supported people in need of various forms of assistant. My commitment is deep, and I have acquired my knowledge and experience in a variety of venues. I have done volunteer work and I have participated in different profit and nonprofit organizations to make a difference in my community. I have a good practical and theoretical support within my field which has given me the opportunity to hold lectures and led radio and TV programs for several years.

It has been rewarding to pass on my knowledge and experience to a larger audience. There has also been a great addition to my more tangible and practical work with people. To combine theory and practice has been stimulating and it has anchored my understanding in the business field. I have had many interesting, stimulating and touching encounters with people in difficult situations. These meetings I carry with me in my heart, and they strengthen me and motivates me to new challenges.

As a person, I am happy and positive. I am responsible, careful and disciplined with understanding and acceptance of established rules. People around me describe me as a reliable and socially competent person with a high work ethic. I always give that little bit extra, as the surroundings are often given me positive feedback.

Experiences کارنامه


I believe in a sustainable world and of human creativity and the ability to take responsibility. Based on such an attitude, without being a member of any group and on my own, I helped asylum seekers, especially hidden refugees who were vulnerable. At the age of eleven, I experienced a revolution in Iran and an eight-year war between Iran and Iraq. After a four-year secondary education in science I fled from the country in 1987 and since then I have never gone back there. I walked across the border into Turkey, escaped by flight from Istanbul to Germany, hiding on a train which took me to Denmark and eventually I came to Sweden by a boat. Since then I have studied and worked and been a human rights activist. Below are some of my experience and qualifications:

The company's focus was home care service and I was employed there during that time to support my mother who had cancer.


The Company offered various supports to vulnerable children. Later on we establish the same company in Borås, Västergötland to assist children in needs.


I worked in this position for over four years. My main duty was to treat addicted criminals. The Prison and Probation Service (Kriminalvården), is the country's fourth largest agency with 9,000 employees. The main tasks of the Prison and Probation Service are to implement prison and probation sentences, to supervise individuals released under special conditions, to implement instructions for community service, and to carry out pre-sentence investigations in criminal cases.

درباره انسان شناسی فرهنگی

انسان شناسی فرهنگی – همانگونه که از نامَش پیدا ست – شناخت انسان است، انسانی که تنها موجود با فرهنگِ جهان می باشد. همه ی فرهنگ ها در گوهر همانندی هایی دارند چراکه همه ی آنها در گهواره یی پیدایش یافته، رُشد کرده اند که ما آن را سپهر (طبیعت) می نامیم. اما ا ز آنجایی که سپهر این کره ی خاکی یک دست و همانند نیست هر فرهنگی رشدِ ویژه ی خود را دا شته است. گذرزمان هم فرهنگ ها را از همدیگر دور کرده و به سمت و سوهای گوناگونی کشانده است. کوشش انسان شناسان بر آن است که انسان را از دیدگاه های گوناگون بشنا سند و همانندی ها و ناهمانندی های آنها را با ریزبینی بنگرند. چگونه هر انسان، فرهنگ خود را می سازد و چگونه خود، ساخته و پرداخته ی همان فرهنگ است؟ چگونه در فرهنگ های این سو و آن سوی جهان همانندی هایی به چشم می خورد که یکی بودن و همبسته بودن انسان را به نمایش میگذارندوچگونه گوناگون بودن فرهنگی مازیبایی زندگی راهمچون گلستانی پُرازگلهای گوناگون چندین برابر می کند؟ 


What is Cultural Anthropology?

The word culture has its origin in Latin cultura and means 'cultivation', one man facetiae concepts that have been defined on many different ways among other thing "a society's patterns of existence" or "those common thoughts and feelings that together govern our words and documents". The concept anthropology has its origin in Greek and comprises antropos or anthropos that means 'people' and logi or logos that means 'words' and log'ia smiled 'learn', 'science' or 'the faith about'. With culture anthropology means one therefore 'the faith about the people that culture [being]', to give knowledge about how the people shape and to be shaped of its culture and those society relations during what she liver, and give knowledge about the variations in those different cultures and society shapes that people created.


Culture or "cultivation" is the people's ways to use the natural resources i e. ecology, economy or technology - here covers the ensemble average people and nature / nature and people. But the ensemble can also cover people and culture / culture and people. Some examples within this area are:
