"Educated" by Tara Westover


I came to the United States from Iran in 1985 with a student visa. I lived in Massachusetts and studied computer science for 2 years at Framingham State College. In 1987, I went back to Iran and got my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in English. I got married and started living with my husband in California in 2000.

I consider myself very lucky to live in part of the world where I have access to many other cultures and traditions.

I have two daughters who love learning and exploring.

I enjoy being around students and learning from the new generation.
