Golsa Sarabi = GS and Esteban Escobar = EE

EE: In your own words who is Golsa Sarabi?

GS: Golsa Sarabi has lived in different cities around the world since she was a little girl. Changing locations, living in different societies and cultures, and starting everything over taught her so many great lessons, such as flexibility, strong personality, and dedication. She is a hard working person that when she sets her mind into something, she will definitely overcome the challenges to make it happen. She’s an energetic woman, who loves to inspire people around the world and transfer her love and energy to them. She has so many nice dreams and wishes for humanity and peace around the world, and one thing is for sure about her, that “She is here to use her talents and make a Change.”

EE: Who is Mirage?

GS: Mirage was suggested by one of my great friends, who owns a production company. It has the same meaning as my last name in Farsi, but it seems easier to say and more international for the entertainment industry. I love how it sounds, so unique!

EE: What do you fear the most?

GS: I believe life is full of challenges and different experiences that can teach us great lessons. We mostly fear of things that are unknown to us, but I believe I’m blessed by God’s power and even in the most difficult situations, his love always protects me.

EE: Please tell us about your Awards? and what they mean to you?

GS: I believe the most recent one was winning the title of Ms. Iran and being the candidate for the Queen of the Universe. I have won so many awards at school and college as the honor student, or the most intelligent student, or different gold and silver medals in sports competitions, and great recognition by my acting professors, directors, and even employers. What they all mean to me is, I always enjoy learning and I never feel fulfilled even if I win an Oscar one day, because I know there will be another experience that I never had before, I’ll keep up the hard work for the next role. So, there’s always room for growth as long as I’m alive, and I enjoy working hard for my heart’s passions.

EE: Whom have help you where you are now?

GS: My family has been always a huge support in my life, that I couldn’t have done anything without their help.

EE: What’s next for you in 2013?

GS: So many things. Actually, I always write down my next year’s goals exactly on the last day of the year, and you won’t believe it if I say that thankfully I achieve most of them by the end of the year. I will just shorten them in a few words that definitely there will be more projects and learning in acting and modeling path, fitness business, volunteer jobs, and charity events that have been already planted from 2012. I feel 2013 is the year that the seeds that I have planted from 2012 will start growing step by step.

EE: How would you like or want people to remember you when you die?

GS: A fearless top actress, that people enjoy her projects even though she’s not alive anymore. Also, the person who has made different moves for humanity, and helped so many people with a kind heart and nice smile.

EE: Whom you would like or want to thank?

GS: First, I would love to thank my family for their support. Then, all of my wonderful friends and fans, and most importantly my wonderful manager Sean Noori, and all of my amazing sponsors, especially Pars TV which I wouldn’t be able to continue my path without their strong supports. Also, I would love to appreciate the president and the whole pageant’s crew that have been giving me this wonderful opportunity to take this path with them, and all of their hard work and effort. It was absolutely a phenomena experience!! And last but not least, a special thanks to all the Iranians around the world. Love, Peace and Happiness to the whole world, “Happy 2013”
