Before founding her refugee relief organization, Shiva Sarram made her mark as the Manager of Professional Development at McKinsey & Co. and as an associate at Tiger Management, a U.S. hedge fund based in New York City managing more than $36 billion. Sarram decided to leave her lucrative business career in 2009 and found a non-profit organization with a mission to help refugees around the globe. This was primarily due to her experiences as an Iranian refugee who had to flee Tehran in the early 80s. The Blossom Hill Foundation provides grants and direct funds to help children affected by the near-constant conflict in the Middle East.
