Dr. Zari Taheri
I went to my last class last night. It was another memorable experience, spending time on something that feels so natural for me to love, Persian poetry. It was too short, as usual, leaving us wanting for more. I suppose I should be grateful for the opportunity, though limited. Even when she isn't around, Dr. Taheri keeps an eye on all of us, sending us emails and telling us about interesting things. We try to get together in her absence, but it never feels as good as when she is with us. She is a remarkable woman, our Dr. T. P.S. No, I'm not in the picture. This is a classroom in Berkeley's Near Eastern Studies Department. That's why there is Arabic writings on the board.
