Ari Honarvar is an award-winning Writer, Journalist, Musical Ambassador of Peace and Founder of ‘Rumi With A View’, which is dedicated to building music and poetry bridges across war-torn and conflict-ridden borders. On this episode, Ari discusses her incredible life growing up in Iran during the Iran-Iraq war, how her mother wrote a poem to the Indian Embassy in hopes of securing a visa to get out of Iran and how she bravely traveled to America alone at the age of 14 to start a new life. Plus, she discusses her struggles with depression and loneliness, which resulted in her creating a platform designed to nurture platonic matchmaking for intentional friendships.
