    Solmaz Haghighat

    Bio:   Solmaz Haghighat lives in a small city near Shiraz. She loves art, especially Illustration. She studied graphic design in high school, but could not continue her studies in this field because, as a Bahá’í, she was barred from attending university in Iran. Now she studies English at the Bahá’í Institute for Higher Education.
