“My father is considered as the first key maker in Mahabad, meaning he was the first ever to work on locks and keys and that was the main reason my brothers and I learned the work, and even our kids are starting to learn. I remember as a kid when my father had a shop, people used to bring him locks to fix and he used to give it to us and tell us if we are able to open it, he’d give us candy. Since I had learned from my father, I used to quickly open it and give it back for the candy. I grew up doing this job and I am more and more drawn into it each day. I finally opened my own shop and started working and got married. Thank God that I have always faced good in life, and I consider myself an honest man, I’m very happy with my life.”
