Hi! I’m Pontia, the content creator and webmaster of Iran Vegan Travel. Born and raised in the US, I moved to Tehran 5 years ago to teach English and learn more about my heritage. Not long after my move, I became vegan, and soon thereafter, I found my vegan tribe here in Iran! As an Iranian-American, I believe that I have an unbiased perspective on Iran and Iranian culture and a unique ability to explain cultural nuances to foreigners. I share many of these cultural explainers, language tips, and travel diaries on my blog, My Persian Corner. When I’m not teaching or writing, you can find me on a hunt to discover the hidden gems of Iran. I also accompany our group tours because it’s always more fun to share these treasures with like-minded friends!
