Maryam’s primary motivation outside of work is fostering the growth of people via sharing knowledge experiences and resources. She has a deep appreciation for education and its power to enhance people’s lives.

Mahsa obtained her M.S in Physician Assistant Studies from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2020. She is currently a surgical physician assistant at Brigham Women Hospital, Boston, MA

Mahsa believes education should be available and accessible to everyone without extraordinary cost. That’s why she joined HappyHelpers in 2020 to establish a foundation in order to provide assistant to educators.


Amir has taken the same path as HappyHelpers applicants take in 2017, however, he believes the path is getting even more challenging every day for students and this was the main motivation for him to join HappyHelpers in 2020. Amir’s favorite part of his work is when he sees the students share the photos or videos they take during their flight o the U.S. 

Besides being a HappyHelpers member, he works as an architect, shaping buildings and cities to make them a better place to live. In his free time, he enjoys wandering around different neighborhoods in Boston and getting inspiration from virtually everything.
