MAHDIS REZAEI 

Ambassador, Communications

Mahdis is the founder and CEO of Mahdis Rezeai Coaching LLC. Her focus is on helping people make their own choices in life, to triumph over boundaries, judgments, and limits.

Her personal story is an example of her philosophy in action. Originally born in a small town in Iran, Mahdis moved to India at the age of 19, a country where she didn’t speak the language. Her adventurous journey began in India and continued to Malaysia, Italy, England, and now the USA.

As an Iranian woman like any other, her life story should have been written for her, ending safely and predictably within preset lines – but she chose a different ending. After years of struggling with boundaries of faith and tradition, she found herself – renouncing narrow beliefs, deciding her own sexuality, working her way to financial success, and carving her own life path in ways that others deemed impossible.

And she did so because she made a choice. To show up. To live the life that she wanted to. To take responsibility. To rewrite her story. To not just be the Persian princess her society, tradition, and the family wanted her to be. But to be the woman who chose to decide that her future is bigger and better than the past. And now she invites others to do the same.
