My name is Roozbeh Mirebrahimi. I was born in Rasht, Iran, on September 1978. I am a journalist and am at present the chief editor of the Persian language periodical Iran in the World. I have lived in the United States since 2006. I was the second child of a lower middle class family in the Caspian Sea area, lower class by Western standards. My father was an illiterate commuting bus driver, but my mother had a high school diploma. Our limited income was not enough for a family of five, so my mother, who knew a little sowing, has to use her craft to support the family. I started my career as a journalist at a very young age, having developed a passion for reading. My father was a soccer fan and liked to follow the sport news. Not knowing how to read, he would buy me the sports magazines for me to read to him. Exposed to sports news, not only did I become a sport fan too, but also I become an ardent reader. Very soon, my reading basket was piled high with all sorts of newspapers and magazines, political and social as well as sports. With reading newspapers, a new idea formed in my mind. I dreamed of becoming a journalist. I dreamed of seeing my own writing in newspapers on newsstands. To fulfill that dream, I bought a typewriter and started to publish my own newspaper, a publication that has only one writer and one reader—myself! It did not take long for all my dreams come true. An open atmosphere for publications and press which was ushered in by the new cabinet of President Mohammad Khatami in 1997 created a good opportunity for people like me to enter the journalistic arena, where I found a place for myself too. At first, I wrote for various publications free of charge, being more interested in getting my work published than making money. But I soon received offers to be paid for my writings and became a professional journalist. I worked very diligently and learned reporting and writing from my colleagues and my editors. I was only twenty-four when I was appointed to the board of editors of the political desk in the Etemad, a national daily. Prior to that, I had also been in charge of the newsroom of a few other newspapers. Since I had been interested in politics since my youth, and had read so much in this field, I focused on it as my journalistic career, and worked for years as a political columnist, analyst, and essayist in Persian publications.
