Who Am I?


My name is Ava. I am 26 years old. I am originally from Tehran, Iran, have lived in Kayseri and Istanbul, Turkey and currently call Los Angeles, California my base, for the times when I am there. I have also lived in Bangkok, Thailand doing a business internship, studied abroad at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy, and lived in San Francisco, CA.

I love playing sports especially snowboarding, tennis, and doing yoga. I have been playing the Classical Guitar since I was 7 and also love singing. I studied Business Administration and am planning to go to law school later. Currently, I am working on expanding my business, AVAH Apparel, that I have built with the purpose of helping people around the world. Ultimately, I want to be a Human Rights Activist and travel the world to help those in need, and I hope to do that with AVAH as well.

This blog exists because I wanted to share with you my love and passion for traveling, meeting new people, eating new delicious mouth-watering food from around the world, learning new languages, and emerging myself in new cultures. I also want you to get a chance to travel to your dream destinations and be able to see the places you've always wanted to see through me.

The blog is also a place for me to share with you the stories of the amazing people globally who create the unique and beautiful products on AVAH, by hand and with so much love. I want you to be able to know them, where they are from, their environment, and the amount of care that goes into making every single product. It will also be a place to share the stories of the children and women we help together by giving to causes with every purchase.

I want you to travel with me! Tell me which country, city, island or village you want me to go next, what attractions to go to or what places to visit while I'm there!

This is a blog for me and you, kind of a collaborative effort. So let's travel together!

P.S. Thank you for reading :)

Much love,
