Jacqueline was born in Tehran in 1961, to an Iranian father and a British mother. In a Middle Eastern country where its people are predominantly Shia Muslim, her family belonged to a Jewish community that made up only about one-third of one percent of the population of 35 million at that time. She began public speaking when she realized that there is an immense interest in her story and unique background.
Through personal stories and family photographs, she helps the audience understand what life was like in Iran, before and after the revolution, from someone who was there. She has a unique perspective on the internal and external challenges posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran. Jacqueline shares her firsthand experiences of Iran's transformation and her thoughts on where the country is headed.
