Persia Monir was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Her father is Iranian and her mother American. She was a dancer (not exotic) when she met her husband and they had a son and she became a nurse.
Persia was married for 10 years and then divorced and moved to Florida to pursue her other love, golfing, and return to dancing. This time it was stripping and she loved it. You can still catch her in occasional shows at Solid Gold in the Ft. Lauderdale/Palm Beach area.
