  1. Thank you to BU Today and Nicolae Ciorogan for putting this piece together. The article is a great step towards empowering the campus community about cultural assimilation, political nuances, and strength of a diverse study body. Great article and multimedia piece!

  2. Thank you for sharing that. Bi-cultural myself (half Greek and half American) I haved lived both in Greece and the United States. I also understand what it feels like to know and care about two countries and to always question “Where and what is home? geography, attitude, community, or routine? Sadly, it’s a question that is not easily answered. I hope Morteza can find his way and I hope this article/video helps the campus community to take an interest in what goes on in the larger world.

  3. What a surprise seeing this title posted on the home page of BU.:)
    Thank you for your great article and BU for paying attention to the cultural and political issues of my country.
    looking forward to hearing from you more.
    Good luck

  4. You inspire me not only as I am almost a grad student in Computer Science, but as someone who has first hand knowledge of the green movement. I have several Iranian friends and its perplexing how the mass media portrays Iran. This is coming from someone who lives in a conservative corner of the Midwest where it is often the Middle East is misunderstood. Good luck with your ongoing doctorate studies at BU. As for BU, excellent documentary of a doctoral student coupled with an ongoing problematic governmental system. Keep up the great work. Happy belated Nowruz!

  5. I think it could be a step of being one strong body formed with wise and Adjuvant members. Iranians do believe in freedom. thank you for this great article.
