Humble Beginnings: How Shervin Pishevar’s Upbringing Played a Huge Role in His Success

By Stephen Callahan

We’ve all heard about the American Dream before-the dream of starting from very little and climbing your way up the ladder of success, all on a basis of hard work, ingenuity, and good old-fashioned blood and sweat. However, there are only a handful of examples of people who have truly lived that American Dream out at every end of the spectrum, moving from nothing through to experiencing the kind of life many people only dream of.

Pishevar was always driven by the desire to learn, which was instilled in him by his parents, alongside the value of hard work. Because of this, he began publishing work at the young age of just 20, when he first published an article on human rights and doctors in JAMA, which had a significant carry-on effect on the formation of the Istanbul Protocol. At a young age, Pishevar had tasted what it felt like to be a part of shaping the world he lived in, and that desire would continue to define his choices during his career.
