Faryaneh Akhavan has a BA in Business with area on concentration in Finance. After 7 years of having built her own business in furniture import/export, her career path went through a huge overhaul when her son was diagnosed with autism. She closed her business, started home schooling her son and four years later started working on establishing a charity, and opening a school for special needs children. She knew that if she was struggling to find appropriate schooling for her child, surely many others would do too. The Snowflake School has now been up and running for 9 years, with 17 children, 26 staff and an ever growing waiting list. Faryaneh now has plans to expand her school and help provide education for another 30 to 40 pupils.
