I am most excited about my upcoming trip to Portland where I will be speaking to a sold-out event for the Women’s philanthropy division of the Jewish Federation. To think that 400 of my books have already been sold before the event is quite unbelievable to me. The theme of this event centers on people’s stories and how it impacts our lives.
While I was thinking of some points to share at the upcoming Feb. 8th event, it struck me–my maiden name is Maddahi. In Persian, the word Maddahi means one who tells stories. So, it seems that perhaps I was destined to tell stories!
I will certainly update you on my month-long series of experiences and events.
