In 2013, after her recovery from ankle injury, she played for Lund university in European University Games in Uppsala. Following that she started to practice in the morning 7-9, two times a week, in Copenhagen Badminton Center with Anu Nieminen (4 times olympian from Finland) as coach and a couple of great badminton players, including Nicola Cerfontyne (#1 in England) and Nanna Vainio (#1 in Finland).
Behnaz says, “I was getting up at 5:30 to reach the train at 6 to be at the practice at 7. After practice, I had to rush to S-tog to reach the central to take the train to Lund to be at work at 10:30. You might ask: "why?". I would say, to reach my dreams, I will do anything.”
