Hello, my name is Dr. Fariba Parsa, I am the founder and CEO of Self- Empowerment Academy to empower women and girls. I believe the first step for empowerment is when we have the courage to know ourselves, our values, and be responsible, and committed to win over circumstances. I left Iran and became a refuge in Denmark. I learned Danish and studied at university, got my Master Degree in political science and a PhD in sociology. I was elected to several Danish national organizations as board member worked with human/ women rights, and democracy. I was honored to be accepted as visiting post-doctoral fellow at Harvard university in Cambridge, USA and continued my research about Iran for two years, later I continued at George Mason University in Virginia and worked as assistant research professor. I initiated the nonprofit organization Women’s E-Learning in Leadership, WELL at George Mason University and we have created a WELL-Student Organization, a mentorship program, and organized leadership seminars.
All my life I focused and still focus on learning and grow, empower myself and helping other women to empower themselves to make a positive change in their community. The Self-Empowerment Academy is a private company collaborate with WELL organization and provide courses on personal growth and leadership skills. We have developed 7 coaching sessions and a guided book to help women to unleash their power and make a difference in the world.
