Hello, Welcome!

My name is Lia and I am twenty-one years old from the beautiful Vancouver. Here in this page, I will be posting information and updates about my community work, my journey to Miss World Canada, thoughts and ideas, and many more!

First things first, I moved to Canada from Iran in 2011 and that is when I started doing research about Mental Health issues and Immigration. As an immigrant, I  have noticed how much I wrestled with culture shock, and the journey to build myself  back up was not an easy one. however, I have realized that this journey is not only empowering but also motivating to share our roots with everyone else from different backgrounds and Canada gives us this opportunity. 

Ever since I moved here, I have been performing different styles of dancing such as : Folk Persian, Afghan, Polish, Ballet, Lyrical, Azarbaijani (Turkish), and many more which I mostly choreograph myself. Being able to find a balance between my Eastern and Western culture has been the most incredible experience of my life.

I’m a theatre student and I chose it because I get a chance to connect to people with different perspectives and backgrounds and also I can at least try and be in their shoes for a day. For about a year after my immigration I could only communicate with people through body language because I did not know English. That has given me the ability now to be able to understand other people who are  going through the same situation and it is so beautiful seeing how we can always find a way to connect to one another even if we don’t speak the same language !

Participating at Miss World Canada competition has always been a dream for me and I will make it come true. This is just a little peek at my life story and I can’t wait to share the rest of it with all of you!

Stay tuned,


Lia , Miss Vancouver World 2017
