Hello! My name is Sahar Pazirandeh... to keep it short, I am a people & WOMEN empowerment junkie. Actualizing my dreams in New York City, often in Colorado and Florida - consulting other entrepreneurs, artists and organization to do the same.

Fashionlanthropist mentoring and creating with teens through credit-earning fashion programs I developed. Who says learning isn't chic?

And when I'm not engulfed in all of this I help fundraise (grant writer & events) for non-profits, including public schools.

Thank you for stopping by, hope to meet you soon. ~Sahar

Tenae was right...

...when she said we learned from each other. Freedom Star Mentoring officially launched this month. Last semester Tenae and Chelsea became the first young ladies to experience mentorship and internship through Freedom Star.

Some of our accomplishments included increasing Freedom Star's web presence, planning and executing a very successful Inaugural Unity Ball.

Freedom Star collaboration with Soulseye Productions will have footage of the event featuring Edyta Sliwinska from Dancing With The Stars.

The inspiration of our accomplishments had me thinking bigger and more fashion. Freedom Star Mentorship is now offering Fashion Show Productions Internship Program. Eight to ten high school students will create, plan and put on a fashion show. Proceeds from the event will benefit a cause or program the group decides on collectively. From stylists, event planners, producers to set designers everyone will have something fantastic to contribute. Pictures and video coming soon.

Mentoring is my true passion. I love watching the moment when inspiration is ignited, and a young woman/man realizes the next step to shaping her/his future. It's a process that is quite addicting. Speaking of...

My ambassador duties with Jarluxe have officially begun. On Saturday's I have the opportunity to spend time with the young ladies and gentlemen from Bronx High School of Visual Arts. We spend Saturday morning learning and creating, while preparing these smart and dedicated students to be Fashion's next Executives.
