Natasha is a professional writer and creative residing in sunny Southern California. Her Persian American heritage is rooted on an organic orchard of fruit and nut trees and vegetable and herb gardens, where she spent half of her life learning firsthand about plant-based whole foods from Nature and the seasons. From her early days as spelling bee champ to her recent years writing for some of the web's leading publications, she has always valued the power of language. In addition to words, she has an affinity for all things related to animals and environmentalism, art and music, and vegan living. Natasha has written over 1,000 articles on plant-based content, and her work has been republished and translated by numerous global media outlets.
