Recognizing Influential Global Citizens Of The Past, Present and Future
A Culture of Achievements
Over the course of 3,000 years and into the 19th century, the Persian people remain the leader in advancing the science, technology, economy and humanity accessible to our global civilization. In 1935 Persia became more formerly called Iran, but the terms “Persian” and “Iranian are still used interchangeably.
Indeed, Persia is called the “Cradle of Civilization” due to the influential contributions of a culture guided by the ancient Zoroastrian principles; Good Deeds, Good Thoughts, Good Words and a deep devotion to multi-disciplinary studies.
Over 10 years ago, Dr. Yassini formalized his vision of giving voice to the Persian culture of innovation through the creation of a program at Harvard University. This program, SINA, has 3 chapters dedicated to motivating the level of achievement exemplified of Persian heroes, innovators and thought leaders from the past, present and future.
“Global Citizens” also honors the ingenuity of the Persian People by recognizing some of these most influential citizens from the far past, the significant progress afforded by the innovative citizens of today and brilliant, potentially Nobel prize winning, scholars representing the future potential of Persian descended citizens to carry the legacy of leadership and innovation far into the future.
