She wanted to dispel the stereotypes found in western media about the average Iranian a raging extremest,

"We'd see pieces about Iran on television, but they didn't represent my experience at all. I had to keep saying, "No, it's not like that there." I've been justifying why it isn't negative to be Iranian for almost twenty years. How strange when it isn't something I did or chose to be?"


That all iranians are extremist and agree with the past acts of terrorism
