Role Models: Fatemeh
Can you introduce yourself? Job title, education, languages, hobbies, your family etc.
I am Fatemeh, Ph.D. in Astrophysics, Assistant Professor at Xi’an Jiaotong University, mother of a beautiful son, and a wife of a wonderful man with a Ph.D. in Astrophysics with whom I work (laughing).
We had an emotionally supportive home environment. My father always asked us to set big dreams and goals and then make them real. My parents let me do it on my own. Make my own decisions in my life with consistent support. This made me a confident person. This is an effective way to help a person grow and develop. My father always asked us to choose role models and follow in their footsteps to achieve our goals. A role model teaches you never to give up and make an effort to improve, succeed, and make a difference. He also always encouraged us to have higher education. He said education illuminates a person’s mind and thinking.
