I'm Aryana, 28 years old and Iranian/German. I was born in Germany but my parents are from Iran so I had the privilege to grow up with two different cultures.
I grew up in a very small town in Germany and moved to Hamburg when I was 16. When I finished High School I wanted to take a year off to travel like Léah but I was just not ready yet to travel solo. So I started my bachelor studies right away. I had no idea what the heck I was doing and thought "something with media" sounds good.
Luckily I really enjoy the field of media and communication. After my bachelor's I worked for a while in my field but came to a cross road. Either that will be it and I start climbing the career ladder or I do something else.
I decided I was ready to go abroad solo and traveled Australia and Thailand for 2 months. It was the best decision I've ever made! It was one of the best times in my life and I met the love of my life on this trip.
Fast forward: I got my master's degree, went vegan, rocked 3 years of long distance relationship, traveled through Asia with my love and finally came to Hamburg a couple weeks ago back and we moved in together. Can't wait for the next chapter in my life, sharing my journey and hopefully inspire along the way!
Léah about Aryana
"I remember the first time I saw Ary. Guys, I was honestly so jealous. I know it’s stupid, jealousy sucks and I have grown since then, but I just saw this beautiful young lady talking to my then boyfriend.
I quickly got over it and we made friends. Since the beginning Ary and I always had tons of fun. Ary has an amazing sense of humor. We just got each other, and I felt like she was a little bit like the sister I never had. I loved our daily drives to school in my very messy volvo and miss those almost daily.
If I think back to those days, we were so very different but I guess our core beliefs always stayed the same and this is why we are still such good friends. In the past 12 years we mostly don’t see each other for a year or two but when we do it’s honestly like nothing changed.But enough sulking about how much I miss her and more about Ary.
So besides the fact that she is gorgeous, she is also beautiful on the inside. Aryana has such a good heart and is an amazing friend. I know I can always count on her. She is also super goal driven and I know she can achieve anything she puts her mind to, and I know she will be a very successful business women no matter where life takes her.
She also has this zen power, Aryana is super calming and I don’t mean in a sleeping tablet kind of way but just super grounded. She brings me back to earth when I need it. It’s her whole being and especially her beautiful voice, which you will hopefully soon get to listen to in one of our planned podcasts."
