Sahar’s seasoned experience in the business serves her well in countless responsibilities – process design, project management, strategic planning, quality control, and brand identity to name a few. When not immersed in this myriad you can find her brainstorming on how to improve 2Ms operations.
With a background in art, political theory, and socioeconomic research, Sahar plays a pivotal role in the vision and ethos of 2M. She enjoys the creative process from conceptualization to workshop builds too, so don’t be surprised to find her wrapped in cables or armed with pliers.
With the long view, her mindfulness of both long term and real time benefits for all parties involved throughout project lifespans from inception to support and future collaborations ties everything together.
From a marketing perspective always invested in communicating the essence of 2Ms kooky and creative work to the outside world, as well as presenting to industry insiders across the globe.
8 years ago I began training as a person-centred counsellor in my spare time. I really enjoy the ethos given it values equal and transparent relationships. So too does it hinge on the premise that each individual holds the key to their own solutions ~ therefore the discipline is not prescriptive or presumptive.
I went onto volunteer at Age UK and Face to Face Counselling, where I also served as Convener for the best part of 2 years. My time at Age UK forever shifted my perception of clients in their senior years, in which the propensity to actualize remains in abundance. Over at Face to Face I became aware of the injustices of no/low income and cutbacks ~ given clients manifest so much healing and progress in the environment of open ended counselling, which is denied most people on no/low income ~ and which is actually beyond the means of many on average income too.
In 2018, with much experience and a firm understanding of safeguarding within the discipline, I transitioned into my own practice which is proving very enjoyable and rewarding indeed.
I enjoy travelling to Tehran where I was born and capturing the culture and cuisine in snapshots on Vine. My videos have been played in schools and galleries throughout New York especially, and it’s always rewarding sharing the ordinary lives of Iranians with the world.
Another thing I like to do is to make vegan variations of our array of foods, and soon I’ll begin sharing seasonal recipes on the Unicorn website based in Chorlton ~ an organic food hub in the heart of Manchester.
I enjoy music very much, and after a hard week of daytime and nighttime work the dance floor is the perfect place to unwind ~ anything with a drum beat weaving through it is incredibly welcome on my playlists.
