Iranian Family Embraces Both Cultures

Saeid Zeiaei and his wife Hadija Faraji became U.S. citizens last year. They have two young children born in the United States.

Even though all four members are American citizens now, and they are embracing American culture, the family continues to preserve their Iranian heritage, too.

They watch Iranian shows on their satellite TV and their son is learning to chant the Koran in Arabic.
