The Courageous Class Q&A: Nasir Sobhani
The message I surround myself with, which is inspired by the Baha’i Faith, is to “let your vision be world-embracing.” No prejudice, only love. Everyone deserves to be heard, to be loved, and to be treated with respect. Service to humanity is a pillar of the Baha’i faith and this message has become a driving force of “The Streets Barber” movement. When a client sits in my chair, I try to speak to them like a friend, to see and recognize the humanity in them, and treat them with respect so that they feel good about themselves. It’s amazing the kind of change I have seen in people who just crave some human interaction. Everyone can give the gift of empowerment.
