Nazanin was born in Iran. Now 24, she is a graduate of the University
of British Columbia with a degree in Political Science and International
Relations, and has studied in France and England. She currently
studies Broadcast Journalism while balancing a successful career
as a model, actress and Global Youth Facilitator.
Nazanin says her favourite job was working with youth in raising
awareness of global issues and humanitarian crises, such as landmines,
the poverty-disease cycle and children affected by war. She hopes
to become the next Christianne Amanpour, working as a foreign
correspondent, but first, plans on writing and producing documentaries
focusing on third world development issues. Nazanin has received
dozens of awards throughout her education, and has appeared in
several television shows, movies and music videos.
She loves flying, sailing, kayaking and go-kart racing, and has
special training in voice, drama, public speaking, dance - and
bush survival skills! Nazanin would love to meet Nelson Mandela,
and was Squadron Commander and Warrant Officer First Class in
the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. She is fluent in English, French
and Farsi, and speaks conversational Spanish.
