"The entertainment community has a powerful role in shaping public opinion and the issues that are prioritized in society," shared Amini. "Unfortunately, historically underrepresented communities, such as the Iranian community, have been largely ignored by mainstream media. This results in a lack of awareness and understanding of the challenges and plights faced by these groups. It is imperative that media outlets shed light on these issues, bringing attention to the unique struggles and experiences of these communities. This is why I am so thrilled to bring this conversation with Crown Prince Pahlavi to the global community."

Diversity, inclusion, and education through entertainment have always been at the core of Max's work, and he continues to use his ever-growing platform to enact real change within his space and community.
