To whom it may concern,

I am a first generation immigrant from the Islamic Republic of Iran. I was raised secular at home but attended school where Shia Islam was the enforced ideology, I consider my knowledge of that particular part of the islamic world as interesting and hope to implement it in the effort to spread the ideas that are integral to western civilisation. Freedom of speech, expression and the criticism of ideas are some of the cornerstones of my private study of philosophy and I aim to help anyone I can in finding freedom from religious oppression. I study Physics at university and aim to become an academic.

With gratitude,
