Touched & Proud

by Nahzi on

I am touched by her passion and proud of her action.


Eccentric, Spooky, Bizarre, Beautiful

by bahmani on

Part of the great crime that Iran has tried to perpetrate on us, is the stifling of the evolved Iranian.

Miss B, proves that while you can try, you can never stifle weird. And that weird is good. Weird questions the commonly held beliefs that have often been more of the problem, than the cure or solution.

Weird is also brave enough to weather criticisms and threats, and push through the dark into the light.

Miss B wonderfully illustrates that weird can conquer everything from a simple odd look on the sidewalk, to the most difficult challenges a person can face.

A question was raised as to what Miss B could have done if she had stayed in Iran, I think the answer is obvious.

Long live the weirdos, too bad we don't have more of them!


Woman of the year 2006

by Emrooz on

 She is the realest of the real. She has done so much, given so much of herself to establish her charities to take care of the needs of these children. Among which, she has mortgaged her flat/apt and used the money for the kids and as a result almost became homeless herself....
She came from a very wealthy family and lead a childhood full of all kinds of privileges.

I wish her, her children, and children all over the wold the very best. 

She is Truly ONE OF A KIND.

Can you imagine...What if she had been " able" to remain in Iran??

I always liked her for what she does.

I really do not want to sound political but if pahlavis were like her, we did not have to put up with mollahs for over 30 years.

I also think the last part of this video, about british society, was so accurate.

So Amazing

by Soosan Khanoom on

Oh I so love what she does ... I have room in my heart for all the orphans in this world but i just wished I was able to do something that actually counts and here she is with this amazing job that she has done .... I envy her 

Thanks CC for letting us know about Camila 

I like the way she dresses ... I mean her independent choice ... She  has her own mind and does not give a damn

Are you revising your view of psychotherapy? ;)

Camila is so eloquoent "quietly, gently and eccentrically ...." (her words in the video)

Thanks CC.

More power to her! It is so heart warming to see Iranian like her.


Very touching…so compassionate

by Bavafa on

These are the people that they actually make a difference, they put their money where their mouth is and walk the walk

My hat off to her and what she has created




by ComraidsConcubine on

 for a beautifully done presentation of her!

She is quite a bit of a giant in many ways; larger than life vision so to speak, she works, works, works 24hrs a day full-swing, knows everyone in town and is deservedly very well-respected. Amazing woman.
