My hero is Anousheh Ansari. She was born in Mashhad but now she is living in the U.S.A. She is the first woman private explorer that traveled to space and she examined different things there.

Anoushe is my hero, because she is an Iranian and she is Muslim. She showed to all of the people of world that a woman could be successful in different ways.

When she came back to earth, she said: "That was really nice when I saw the earth from space. I could see the flood, waves of the ocean,… and I really enjoyed seeing them."
