She is most known for her role in Venice Bound, Jack the Dog, and her most recent gig starring on Atypical, a Netflix Original TV series. As an Iranian refugee, Ameri was forced to move to the states with her family and start her life over. However, from the age of five, Ameri knew what she was destined to become.

Bronze Magazine: Tell me Nina, how did you deal with being only five years old and witnessing a revolution at such a young age?

Nina Ameri: I have vivid memories that I remember. I remember that there was a curfew. You had to be in the house by a certain time. The curfew was a new thing put in place probably for the impending revolution that was coming. One time the curfew bell rang and I was at a friend’s house, I wasn’t home. I remember panicking and my parents had to secretly pick me up. We had to leave secretly from a back door and through a garden to our car. Driving on back roads to get home without getting caught. It was so scary to me.

Bronze Magazine: Are there any memories from back home that has stayed with you since?

Nina Ameri: I had these beautiful white Persian cats named Kitty and Mishu. I loved them and they were exquisite looking. I remember learning English and playing with my tutor’s American son, practicing my newly learned language.

Bronze Magazine: How was the transition to living in the states?

Healthy Roots Dolls is an inspirational movement designed to help young women of color love their curly hair the way that it is and to ultimately love themselves. "I never had a doll that looked like me growing up, and the one time my parents gave me a black doll, I instantly started crying because to me, it wasn't a pretty one," confessed founder and creator Yelista Jean-Charles. "I was often shown that the standard of beauty was long straight hair and light skin."
