Pronounce My Name?



A lot of people, suggested I change my name when I migrated to San Francisco from Tehran. Through the experience of these responses, I realize that there is something interesting behind different pronunciations. I believe that pronunciations are powerful. They allow you to understand diversities and a variety of cultures and backgrounds that exist in one specific location, such as San Francisco. The way an individual or a group pronounces a word varies depending on the culture and its languages and dialects.
