Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LOS ANGELES - May 11, 2017 - Acclaimed author, speaker and philanthropist Angella Nazarian has granted ZEFYR LIFE an exclusive conversation in which she discusses her childhood, self-growth, the importance of knowing oneself and striving for fullness in life.
‘Like many of the extraordinary revolutionary women that she has touched in life and portrayed in her books, Angella Nazarian’s exemplifies an attitude of openness towards life and its possibilities and the very idea that we will save ourselves by saving others.’ said Florian David Editor-in-Chief and Co-Founder of ZEFYR LIFE in London. Lina Daugirdaite, ZEFYR LIFE’s Creative Director and Co-Founder added: ‘The Iranian Nazarian Family ensured early-on that their eleven year old girl would find shelter in America just before the Iranian revolution burst in 1979. This showed vision. And while that separation took a toll on the family, Angella turned around these challenging circumstances and became a true citizen of the world using her voice and her pen as an advocate of women’s rights and freedom’.
