Iranian of the day

May 10, 2005

Many of us know Sudabeh Shoja for all the humanitarian efforts she is involved with. I am so proud to have the honor of being a friend. She is not only the most unselfish humanitarian out there, but she is now only the second woman in history (and the first one in 40 years) to win the most prestigious engineering award in America.

Please pass this on, far and wide. It's about time someone recognized Sudi for her work. She started her humanitarian efforts from a very young age of 12 and has worked continuously to improve the lives of children and raise the status of women internationally. Sudabeh Shoja is now the President of Children's Hope International Literacy and Development (CHILD) and the Secretary of the board of International Orphan Care (IOC).

The Hoover medal will be presented to her in October in the ASCE Congress, see the attached. This is great. Don't you love how amazing Iranian women are. They have completely dominated the news in the past 2-3 years from the Nobel Prize, to an Oscar Nomination and now the prestigious Hoover medal.


This definitely made my day, week and month.
