Sam Sedaei

Sam Sedaei was born in 1982 in Iran. He lived in Tehran until 1999 before immigrating to the United States at age sixteen on his own to explore the American ideals of freedom and democracy.

He did not immigrate to the U.S. because of the height of skyscrapers or might of its military, but for the ideas summed up in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, protecting individuals' rights to free speech and separation of church and state. Having experienced deprivation of his most basic civil liberties for most of his life, he deeply loves America as a beacon of freedom, and believes that that freedom should never be taken for granted.

He went to high school in Chicago and received his bachelors in Economics and Political Science with concentration in Public Policy from Kalamazoo College in June of 2006. During his time at that venerable school, he organized the First Kalamazoo College Democratic Convention before the 2004 presidential election, was elected as the President of the Kalamazoo College Democrats for the 2005-2006 school year, founded and was the editor-in-chief of the Lux Esto Law Review (the law review of Kalamazoo College), was invited by the board of Michigan American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) to represent Kalamazoo College in a stimulated debate on affirmative action along with two other team members in the Kalamazoo District Courthouse and graduated with honors. Following graduation, Sam moved to Chicago where he was elected the leader of the Economic Equity Team of the Chicago chapter of National Organization for Women (NOW).

He recently moved to Washington DC to begin working as a Legislative Dispatcher for a bipartisan lobbying firm.

Sam revisited Iran during a five-week trip that expanded from two weeks before the 2005 Persian presidential elections until three weeks after the event to do a clandestine research on social issues that related to the growth of the Persian Democracy Movement, a topic that has been getting no media attention in Iran (due to the lack of freedom of speech) or in the West despite the current nuclear standoff between the two countries. The research covered major reasons for the 1979 revolution as well as issues relating to human and women's rights, economy, youth, press and future of the republic under the presidency of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Sam is planning on traveling to Iran again in the near future to expand his research. His writings for The Huffington Post focus on American domestic, foreign, political and economic policy.
