Hanna Jaff Bosdet was born in San Diego to a Mexican (Catholic) mother and a Kurdish (Muslim) father and learned from a young age about bias and discrimination; in America it is not socially ideal to be either Mexican or Muslim, and she is both. Bosdet knew these biases were wrong, and she was determined to change that narrative. A graduate of Harvard University she created her own non-profit, The Jaff Foundation for Education, when she was just 25 years old whose mission is to teach immigrants, refugees and the less fortunate launch nondiscrimination campaigns for the world's peoples to respect one another's race, skin color, natural origin, gender, disability, religion, sexual orientation, social class, political views and age. Bosdet now stars in the Netflix series Made in Mexico.
