Hello! My name is Nooshin and I am an educator, artivist, wife and mom. My daughter is currently five years old and in Kindergarten. If you would like to know more about my professional background and "artivism," please go to my website here.
Welcome to The Momavist! I have been wanting to create a blog since I was pregnant with my daughter. Six years later, here I am fighting through all of the same mental obstacles I had then. The difference now is that the COVID-19 has our country home bound with our devices, and for some of us, with our partners, animals and children. Why is it called Momavist? My initial “Momavist" step through this pandemic has been to use this break as an opportunity to fill in the "gaps" that have been missing in traditional education. For example, embracing minoritized languages, learning through play, creating a foundation that counters social constructions and decolonizing Eurocentric curriculum. Parenting can be a form of activism. For more about my activism outside of parenting, click here .
