Malia Zahra moved to the United States from Pakistan when she was just in middle school. She attended Redland Middle School and Magruder High School in Derwood prior to transferring to Watkins Mill High School, where she graduated from in 2015.
She has modeled for Nike, Barney’s, and Marie Claire among others. She recently completed her first international beauty campaign with CVS, where she can be found on billboards across the country. The CVS beauty ads are all photoshop-free and we’re produced by women.
In between travel for her work, Malia still lives in MoCo and takes accelerated classes at Montgomery College. She majors in communications and hopes to get into entertainment law in the future.
When she’s in town, she loves going to brunch at First Watch or Barking Mad Cafe. She also does kickboxing at iLoveKickboxing in Germantown to stay in shape.
Malia is more than willing to speak with anyone in MoCo that’s interested in pursuing a modeling career. Her advice to aspiring models is to stay focused on goals and put in hard work in everything you do.
