Choose a giving level



Sheida was born on May 5th, 1989.



Sheida was accepted to Farzanegan Middle and High School when she was 12. It is one of the most respected institutions in the country.


Coming to the US

She set her foot in US when she was 24.



Sheida played for the basketball team in high school. She also participated in national track and field, in which she won the bronze medal in javelin throw.



She had two kitties: "Scat Cat" and "Mr. O'Malley", which she named after her favorite Disney characters from Aristocats.


Great White

She was crazy about sharks! Even that would be an understatement. Her ultimate adventure goal was to go to cage diving someday.



There were not many things that could make her excited as seeing an architecture master piece. It was her passion, dream and goal to explore the world of architecture.



Full of energy. She brought joy anywhere she went to and in the hard times she was always there for her friends.
