“I’m eight and living in Ahvaz. I like math more than all subjects and I am not good at all in writing. I can read Quran so well; I also learned the stories of the Shahnameh and its heroes from the book my aunt gave me, the myth of Rostam and Sohrab, Zahak and etc. However, I myself like Rostam more, because he is so strong and powerful; just like me.
When I got sick, I was three years old and I didn't even know the name of my disease. I was just counting the moments that the pain got subside due to the medications and I played. Playing with dinosaurs and ninja turtles with the rest of the kids was my whole world. I also really like the Spider-Man, I have his clothes, mask and swords, but his gloves yet; and Soccer is my love!
If you ask me how naughty I am out of 10? I will say 10. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor to help all MAHAK children; since I’m not sick anymore and I’m a survivor.”
