Your modern family
My family is an amazing blend of the most diverse individuals and epitomizes today's modern family. They came together in 1968 without even a common language. This union gave way to 3 children who were raised in the Deep South of the United States. This coming together of four cultures (Persian, Hispanic, American, Southern) forced us to navigate the world in a different way and learn to do a lot of things that other people didn’t have to learn.
This multicultural story is a brief snapshot of two people from entirely different worlds coming together to form one dream-an American Dream. This year we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the arrival of my parents to this wonderful country. It would be lovely to commemorate their union by having them highlighted on CNN.
