My main inspiration was always my family.

Yes. From the very first days I entered the field, I thought about world championships and other honors.
 
Have you ever lost your motivation to continue?
It's been a long time since we've lost the motivation to keep going. Because of the hardships, the inactivity, the lack of facilities, and maybe the lack thereof. All of this makes an athlete lose his motivation at the same time.

How do you feel as a heroic and proud lady in the world?
Any honor earned for Iranian sports, especially for Iranian women and Iranian women athletes, will really raise the flag of our country, and it is the honor of every athlete, especially for an Iranian woman who has to go through many hardships and practices to It worked and it was definitely a honor for me.
 
How many hours a day do you work out and what did you go through to get your workout and international pride?
I work 6 hours a day in bow and arrow training and 4 hours a day in bodybuilding, and I do exactly 4 hours a day. Getting everything has a price and having a sports life is not just a cost Being out of the country and not at home with my family, that is a far cry from the family that I paid a lot for. Apart from all this fatigue, going through all the fun and getting into a normal life is one thing that an athlete is going through.
 
What university did you study in and what year did you enter Alzahra University?
I was studying at Kerman University and Kish University but unfortunately due to intensive training I couldn't continue. I entered Alzahra University five years ago and now it is my second semester.
 
What do you think about Alzahra University?
I should  thank to all the officials at Alzahra University, and especially Dr. Mollanazeri, who provided the conditions for the athletes to be able to continue their studies. And also, to all the professors who understand the condition of the athletes, and so we can, with the help of all our loved ones, make progress in education.
 
What is your message to Iranian women?
My message to all dear Iranian women is to never give in to hardships and never forget their dreams.
