Hi! I am Fatemeh Haghnejad, My artistic and descriptive name which was chosen for me is Blue Birdy. Once in a dark night, an old woman whose face was obscured completely by the shadows in the forest, stood in front of me and called me Blue Birdy. I was not able to see the woman's face, but her kindness and beauty made itself known through the sound of her charming voice!
