Noosha Ravaghi, born in Iran in 1970, spent her first four years in Tehran with her father and paternal grandparents. She spent the next six years of her life traveling with her father to a number of countries, such as the United States, France, Tunisia, Italy, Greece, and Turkey, and learning different languages (English, French, Arabic, and Farsi) before she went back to Iran just in time to start high school. After Noosha graduated from high school, she started teaching English as a Foreign Language to students of various ages at different schools. She then decided to study French literature and worked with several magazines proofreading French and English texts and translating literary articles from French into Farsi. Noosha got her Masters in French Literature at University of Tehran in Iran. She then went to France, where she attended Sorbonne – Paris III. In 1997, Noosha went to California, where she got a second Masters, and graduated with honors, in Education – Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages at California State University – Fullerton. Noosha is now in Orange County, California, where she has been editing books and teaching English, Farsi, and French to children as well as adults since 1997.
