Tell us about an influential person in your life.

My dad is the hardest working person I know. He immigrated to the United States from Iran when he was 21. His first job was a busboy and he worked his way up to opening, running and owning his own restaurant, Omaha Prime, which just celebrated its 21st year in business. Through his example, he’s taught me that if I work hard, go after what I want and build relationships, I can do anything.

What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?

Celebrate your successes, but don’t stop striving, dreaming and working.

Where did your first paycheck come from?

Bath and Body Works in Omaha, Nebraska

What’s your favorite TV series, song, movie or book? Why?

I’m a big fan of the TV show Say Yes to the Dress because I love wedding gowns. You can often catch me flipping through a bridal magazine, just so I can look at the dresses.
