Resilience is in her DNA. Like many people, Pegah has endured a lifetime of transitions. It started at the age of 3 when she escaped her home country of Iran because there was a revolution happening. Her aunt was a political prisoner and endured unspeakable loss. Her mother was uprooted and moved to Germany and then to the U.S. to start her life over and raise two children on her own and put herself through nursing school. Those two women have been the most influential people in her life. Reflecting back on her life, Pegah shares that she realized that her whole journey – since inception – has been about coming face-to-face with, meeting, and rising above radical changes and transitions with some semblance of sanity and grace. And this is how the 7 pillars of Resilience were born. And this is the basis of her life's work.
