On today’s show, recorded live at Claima Stories: Feast Portland edition, we meet Farrah Jesani, owner of One Stripe Chai. Born and raised in Georgia, Farrah is first generation Indian-American in a family of entrepreneurs. Her dad owned an accounting firm, while her mother ran a cafe that their family owned. As she headed off to college, Farrah was drawn to Art History but was deterred because of a lack of representation in the art world. So, instead she decided to study accounting, following in her fathers footsteps. But she learned pretty quickly that accounting wasn’t for her and changed her major to business.
