Neima Shahdadi is originally from Jefferson City, Missouri and earned his BA in English from MU in 2007. His diverse background includes (but is not limited to) cooking, catering, collegiate sports marketing, screenwriting, digital advertising, managing, and event planning. He first joined the Honors College as an Administrative Assistant in 2015 until departing in 2018.
