Milan Kordestani is an entrepreneur, an equestrian, a professional writer, and a college student.
Born in Stanford, California, Milan moved to England after the divorce of his parents.
He resided in England for about a year before moving back to California where he attended high school at Sacred Heart Preparatory and graduated.
Prior to graduating, however, in his sophomore year of high school at the age of 16, Milan started a business, Milan Farms.
Milan Farms is an organic farm that is proud to humanely raise chickens and to offer customers saffron, eggs, and mint.
Kordestani is currently experimenting on ways to hydroponically grow saffron on sponges.
Currently, his experiments are seeing great results.
If Kordestani decides to move forward with growing his saffron hydroponically, he will be the first person in the world to ever do so.
As a business owner, the Colorado College student also believes in being open and honest with his customers.
He feels that business owners should always have an answer at the ready for any questions or concerns that a customer may have.
When Milan isn’t providing his customers with quality service, he is writing for the Huffington Post.
Milan is an expert on the topics of politics, agriculture, and mental health.
The 19 year old is also a competing equestrian.
Although he has won multiple times, Milan hasn’t yet won a blue ribbon.
However, he has his sights set on one, and people like Betts Coup of The National Horseman believe that Milan accomplishes huge goals in short periods of time, so if he wants to obtain a blue ribbon in the near future, doing so is certainly within his reach.
Milan wasn’t always the champion equestrian that the world knows him as today, however.
His first experience atop a horse wasn’t a positive one because the horse went wild, threw him off, and ran away.
10 year old Milan did something quite impressive, however. He went after the horse.
After he caught up with the animal, he climbed back atop, and began riding again.
When his father, Omid, tells this story, he describes Milan’s reaction in one word: surprising.
It was a surprising act because not too many 10 year olds would be brave enough to climb back on a horse that went wild and ran off.
