Commissioner Khojasteh is currently a first year law student at UC Hastings, right here in the Civic Center neighborhood of San Francisco. He was born and raised in the South Bay and graduated from Santa Clara University in 2016 with a degree in Political Science and French. While in college, he devoted much of his time to working with and uplifting immigrant communities. He was a tutor at Sacred Heart Nativity’s afterschool homework program, he traveled to Costa Rica for a summer to serve as a kindergarten English teacher in a Nicaraguan refugee community, and he was an English teacher and citizenship exam tutor at Pars Equality Center. He was humbled to be awarded the “Volunteer of the Year” award by the Pars Equality Center and was honored for his work by the Santa Clara Refugee and Immigrant Forum. He also interned during his senior year with Congressman Mike Honda and worked with immigrants to resolve their issues with United States Citizenship and Immigrant Services (USCIS) and the State Department. Commissioner Khojasteh looks forward to playing his part and doing what he can to protect the immigrants of San Francisco at a very uncertain time in our city’s and country’s history. Having had parents who fled Iran due to the Revolution of 1979 to pursue an education here in the United States, he hopes to devote his life to protect the American dream for all people. Let’s get to work.
