With her natural charisma, Navia Ziraili Robinson knew she was destined to shine when she competed in her first Actors, Models and Talent for Christ Shine Event in Orlando, Florida in 2011. Born in Marietta, GA, the then six-year-old excelled beyond all expectation in the categories of acting, singing solo, singing with a troupe, and fashion runway modeling, and in the end, was awarded the award for Overall Top Child Model. She soon signed with Generation Model Management of New York and CESD in Los Angeles and began booking commercials, appearing in campaigns for such companies as Moe's Southwest Grill, Dr. Charles Stanley's In Touch Ministries, Smithfield Foods, Inc, AT&T, Golden Corral Restaurants, and Synovus Bank. More serious acting work soon followed, with Robinson joining the cast of D'Asia on the series "Being Mary Jane" (BET, 2013-) alongside Gabrielle Union in 2014. After a memorable guest appearance on an episode of "The Vampire Diaries" (CW, 2009-2017), Robinson next took on the recurring role of Nia on the family friendly series "Raven's Home" (Disney, 2017-) starring Raven-Symone, while at the same time shooting the pilot for a horse-themed series known as "Free Reign" (Netflix, 2017-).
