What are you currently working on with Home For Good?

Why are you interested in working to end chronic and Veteran homelessness in LA County?
Los Angeles County is my home…it also houses more than 58,000 people who sleep on its streets on any given night. This is a huge problem given the fact that sleeping on the streets causes emotional, physical and mental scars on the people who do not have any other option. I take pride in my city and I want to be part of a solution that will put an end to this issue. Together we can end chronic and veteran homelessness!!!
What do you do for fun?
I really enjoy watching movies at the ArcLight Cinemas. I also enjoy cooking and trying out new recipes. I recently made cinnamon swirl pancakes….it was amazing!
What is your favorite food?
Food is my favorite food! I love Persian food, Italian food, and Sushi. I also enjoy finding new restaurants. Right now, I am being more health conscious, so I have been trying out healthy restaurants…LYFE Kitchen and Real Food Daily are my two new favorite spots.
What is your favorite movie or t.v. show?
I have a variety of favorite movies and TV shows. I enjoy watching comedy, action, mystery, and thriller movies…just this past year alone my favorites have been Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Lone Survivor and the Wolf of Wall Street…right now I am very excited about the upcoming 300-Rise of an Empire and The Amazing Spider Man 2!!!
