You are incredibly talented and beautiful, let our audience know how does it feel to be on the cover of a magazine?
I am so genuinely thankful to be receiving this opportunity and truly honored to be on the cover with the world model hunt a$ the years keep moving forward, having hard immigration. It is nice to watch my growth.
Your talent in dancing is unbeatable. Where did it all start?
I love dancing and all its forms since I was little. When I was 6, I went to Dubai for a dance competition and I get a lot of compliments about my dance and talent. I keep continued and practiced for 2 years ago I achieved first place in a dance competition and last year as well.
Have modeling and dance shows been your first career choice?
I have been a dancer since 2006 and still am I, I am the author of two books when I was 11 and 17 years old and it was so blessed. Also, I was successful to be the top teen in Iran in 2018 which was so meaningful for me. I started modeling 3 years ago and made it more serious after t moved to Canada.
2020 has been rough for the world. Have you participated in anything to help the needy?
Yes, it was a rough time of year, I am still isolated for almost 3 months and participated in my online education classes.
Tell us more about your future plans? About career
My goal right now is to open my dance company where I can teach and grew up more talents. 1 am extremely passionate about continuing modeling and being a top model and being covered in magazines, also. I hope I can constitute a charity for homeless children.
What was your childhood like?
Overall. I had a lovely childhood, my mum loves me so much she gave me everything love, care. I did not spend much time with my dad because they were divorced. I was intelligent. Happy and talented child. Somehow spending my time writing a book, dancing, and riding a horse my mom was a successful woman in her career and I was in her salon most of the days. We traveled a lot to Dubai. Turkey. Baku. I had a golden time with my dad’s too and love him so much but unfortunately. He is not with me and lives in Iran. I had a small family and was so alone, but my mom tried everything for me and my happiness.
Tell us about your struggle to be where you are today? Or what are the kind of hardships that you have gone through to be the person you are?
I had an exceedingly difficult life: I can write a whole book of my life story ha-ha. I had an exceedingly difficult situation in Iran because of my dance career, government and federal communications did not allow girls and women to dance but I was so patient to continue my dance skills. I practiced hidden in the basement of my home and filmed in silence. But the last 2 years police arrested me for being a dancer and model because Iran is a Muslim country and women don’t have freedom there. They arrested to be guilty because I was a dancer with freedom, somehow and with gold’s help I could immigrate to Canada with my mom and follow my dreams and goals
Thanks for giving me this opportunity.
