Episode #3: Niloofar – From Iran to San Diego as a Child Political Refugee

In this episode of Not an Alien, Niloofar recounts the alternately harrowing and humdrum story of her family’s flight from Iran in the months before the Islamic Revolution. She shares the challenges and opportunities that arose when she and her family resettled in Southern California after their displacement and de facto political exile, and offers insight into the personal and procedural aspects of becoming American, as well as into what its like being the mother of an Iranian American teenager in New York City.
