Full Bio

Rudi Bakhtiar is an Iranian-American journalist, producer for Reuters in Washington, D.C. Being born in the United States, Rudi moved back and forth between U.S. and Iran. Her family settled down in Los Angeles where she continued her education at UCLA majoring in Biology. Rudi’s inspiration for entering the field of Journalism was due to her uncle, Shahpour Bakhtiar.

After receiving her Bachelors of Science degree in Biology, she pursued her dream of journalism, and received an internship at CNN. Rudi talked intimately about how she progressed from being an intern to a major news anchor woman in less than six years.

She credited this incredible achievement to having passion, perseverance, as well as right timing.

Her feeling towards women working side by side with men in business and other professional corporations, was the following: first that it is a difficult journey because one has to remain a lady and retain her composure and two, to always be aware of one’s conduct around men in order to be taken seriously.

Nevertheless, she believes that a woman can be everything to everybody and more, and this is an asset that one can always employ in one’s business, profession, and career to in order to succeed and achieve one’s goals.

Currently, Rudi is the public relations director at PAAIA, Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans, and she is very enthusiastic about her involvement and uniting the Iranian American Community and having our voice heard at Capital Hill. She encouraged everyone to join PAAIA.
