The Love Story behind The Redemption
Meet Jelveh Pedraza
Detailing her experience of fleeing the Iranian Revolution, Jelveh Pedraza opens up about her survivor’s guilt. As a result of living in the United States, Jelveh witnessed execution of loved ones from afar. Consequently, she denounced her Iranian heritage. Eventually, surrounded by family in California, she felt redemption.
Due to raising her own family, Jelveh learned redemption is possible through endurance. Similarly, allowing pain to develop, and grow – wonderful things can come to fruition.
“If you’re going through anything really hard, endure. There’s something wonderful waiting for you.” — Jelveh Pedraza
