Afarin Pirzadeh, Founder-UX Researcher/Designer, Inome

Afarin Pirzadeh became interested in mental health while groiwng up in Iran and observing her mother, who got married when she was 18, had her first kid when she was 19, and then had two more kids. Afarin's mother was always so busy with taking care of her children that she almost forgot about herself. At some point, she started thinking about who she is as a person, not as a mom. As Afarin watched this journey of self-discovery unfold, she became curious about how we become more self-aware and how we can empower people throughout this journey to make this process as easy as possible.
