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!

She is fluent in English, French and Farsi, and speaks conversational Spanish.
