Shelina Merani is an activist, award winning digital media strategist and stand-up comedian.
She uses standup to build bridges between communities, deconstruct stereotypes and share halal beefs.
In her first professional experience on stage Shelina, had the lead role as an immigrant Iranian girl in a play called "Skin". It was for mature audiences only!
Soon after, she won first prize in a lip-synch contest performing the song "Kiss" by Prince. The doves are still crying.
In Quebec, Shelina won a public speaking contest for relaying the true story of how she crashed her dad's car into a 7-11. Oops.
Today, those hips don't move the sway they used to but despite that, America's got Talent came to her doorstep to audition for their season 12 show. The competition was stiff: singing and dancing dog? The Ottawa Citizen was there to cover it, putting her on their front page.
